Leeds, England — Savannah Energy subsidiary, Savannah Midstream Investment Limited, SMIL has signed a Share Purchase Agreement, SPA, with the national oil company of Cameroon, Société Nationale Des Hydrocarbures, SNH.

The agreement is related to the sale by SMIL and purchase by SNH of 10% of the issued share capital in Cameroon Oil Transportation Company S.A. COTCo.

COTCo owns and operates the 903km Cameroon section of the Chad-Cameroon export pipeline, the Kome Kribi 1 floating storage and offloading facility and related infrastructure.

The pipeline has a 250 Kbopd nameplate capacity and is the only international export route for oil production in Chad.

During 2022, COTCo transported an average of 124 Kbopd of crude oil valued at an estimated US$4.6bn at the prevailing Brent crude oil prices.

In consideration for the sale of the Shares, SNH will pay a cash consideration of US$44.9 million (the “Consideration”) to SMIL. The Consideration, when received, will be used by the Savannah group for part repayment of existing debt facilities.

Completion of the transfer of the Shares from SMIL to SNH will result in SMIL shareholding in COTCo reducing from 41.06% to 31.06%.

According to statement made available to SweetCrude Reports, the completion shall occur upon satisfaction of certain conditions precedent related to amendments to the bylaws of COTCo and is expected to occur in H2 2023. SMIL will retain the right to the dividend attaching to the Shares until the date of payment of the Consideration.

Pursuant to the terms of the SPA, SNH and SMIL have pledged, inter alia, their support of one another as shareholders in COTCo.
