After the divestiture, PTTEP SA’s holding in the two onshore blocks will be reduced to 70 per cent, while Moeco and Palang Sophon will each hold 10 per cent in both fields. The balance is taken up by Win Precious Resources.
Tevin Vongvanich, president and chief executive of PTTEP, said the divestiture was part of PTTEP’s portfolio-management strategy, aimed at adding value to the project and managing risk. The transaction was approved by the government of Myanmar. PSC-G covers 13,330 square kilometres and EP2 covers 1,345 sq km, and both are located in the central Myanmar Basin.
