Vitol S.A. Key Developments

HNR And Vitol Talks Fall Apart

Talks between Harvest Natural Resources Inc. (NYSE:HNR) (HNR) and Vitol S.A. have terminated. HNR announced that negotiations with Vitol, for sale of 66.7% stake in Dussafu Marine Permit PSC have terminated. The talks fell apart as the parties failed to reach definitive agreements. James A. Edmiston, President and Chief Executive Officer of HNR said, “In spite of our best efforts, we were unable to reach an agreement on the terms of a transaction with Vitol that would meet Harvest's requirements on timing and certainty. As evidenced by Gabon's recent deepwater bid round, industry interest is very high in the Gabonese deepwater area. We have just completed our 1,130 square kilometer 3-D seismic acquisition covering Harvest's discoveries as well as the highly prospective outboard area of the block. Our discoveries on the block, our substantial prospect inventory, and the excellent prospectively of our outboard area should continue to draw substantial industry interest."
