News Release

Government approvals received for $575 million sale of Uganda assets to Total

 

21 October 2020 - Tullow Oil plc (Tullow) is pleased to announce that the Government of Uganda and the Ugandan Revenue Authority have executed a binding Tax Agreement that reflects the pre-agreed principles on the tax treatment of the sale of Tullow's Ugandan assets to Total. The Ugandan Minister of Energy and Mineral Development has also approved the transfer of Tullow's interests to Total and the transfer of operatorship for Block 2.

With all the Government-related conditions to closing having been satisfied, Tullow expects the transaction to close in the coming days after completing certain customary pre-closing steps with Total. Tullow will provide a further update once the transaction has closed and funds have been received. On closing, Tullow will receive $500 million consideration and a further $75 million when a Final Investment Decision is taken on the development project. In addition, Tullow is entitled to receive contingent payments linked to the oil price payable after production commences.
