April 23, 2024 [TotalEnergies]- TotalEnergies has signed an agreement with Sapura Upstream Assets Sdn Bhd (SUA) to acquire its 50% interest in Malaysian independent gas producer and operator SapuraOMV Upstream Sdn (SapuraOMV) for a consideration of $530 million, subject to closing adjustments. Closing is expected in the second half of 2024.

 

This agreement follows a first agreement signed with OMV on January 31st, 2024, for the acquisition of its 50% interest in SapuraOMV.

After completion of both transactions, which are subject to some conditions precedent, in particular regulatory approvals, TotalEnergies would own 100% of SapuraOMV.

SapuraOMV’s main assets are its 40% operated interest in block SK408 and 30% operated interest in block SK310, both located offshore Sarawak in Malaysia. In 2023, SapuraOMV’s operated production (100%) was about 500 Mcf/d of natural gas, feeding the Bintulu LNG plant operated by Petronas, as well as 7 kb/d of condensates. On block SK408, the development of Jerun gas field is on track for a startup in the second half of 2024. SapuraOMV also holds interests in exploration licenses in Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico, where a discovery was made in 2023 on block 30.

“Following the transaction with OMV announced two months ago and this new transaction with Sapura Upstream Assets, TotalEnergies will have full ownership of SapuraOMV and become a significant gas operator in Malaysia,” said Patrick Pouyanne, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies. “The SapuraOMV assets are fully in line with their strategy to grow their gas production to meet demand growth, focusing their portfolio on low-cost and low-emission assets. They look forward to strengthening their global partnership with Petronas in Malaysia, a country where they see further development opportunities for their Company.”
