HOUSTON – ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) today announced that it has closed a transaction with the National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) for the sale of its wholly owned subsidiary, Trinidad and Tobago Holdings LLC, for a total consideration of $600 million plus customary adjustments.
Trinidad and Tobago Holdings LLC holds a 39 percent interest in Phoenix Park Gas Processors Limited (PPGPL). PPGPL operates a gas processing and natural gas liquids fractionation facility located at Point Lisas, Trinidad.
“The sale of this noncore, midstream asset represents further progress in strengthening and focusing the ConocoPhillips portfolio, and advances the strategic interests of both NGC and ConocoPhillips,” said Don Wallette, executive vice president, Commercial, Business Development and Corporate Planning. “We appreciate the long and productive relationship we have had with NGC.”
ConocoPhillips expects to recognize an after-tax gain of approximately $290 million for the sale.
Including this transaction, ConocoPhillips has announced expected proceeds of approximately $14.1 billion from the sale of nonstrategic assets as part of its 2012-13 asset disposition program. Through June 30, 2013, the company has received $3.8 billion in proceeds from completed sales, with the remainder expected by year-end 2013. These proceeds will be available for general corporate purposes and allow the company to advance existing growth programs.
