CNOOC Ltd and Sinopec Jointly Acquire 20% interest of Block 32 in Angola
CNOOC Limited is pleased to announce today that the Company through a 50:50 joint venture with Sinopec International Petroleum Exploration and Production Corporation (“SINOPEC”), has signed a Sale and Purchase Agreement with Marathon International Petroleum Angola Block 32 Limited, a subsidiary of Marathon Oil Corporation, to acquire a 20% working interest in the Production Sharing Contract and Joint Operating Agreement under Block 32, offshore Angola. The transaction has a total value of US$1.3 billion, excluding any purchase price adjustments at closing, and will be effective from Jan.1, 2009.

Block 32, with an acreage of 5,090 square kilometers, is an oil rich deepwater exploration block with 12 oil discoveries. The block is located about 150 kilometers off the coast in a water depth of 1400 to 2200 meters.

The parties involved expect to close the transaction by year-end 2009, subject to government and regulatory approvals and the pre-emption rights of the other parties to the Production Sharing Contract and Joint Operating Agreement.

Twelve previously announced discoveries in Block 32 include: Gindungo, Canela, Cola, Gengibre, Mostarda, Salsa, Caril, Manjericao, Louro, Cominhos, Colorau and Alho. Conceptual development studies are underway in order to identify the feasibility of a first development area in the central southeastern part of Block 32.

Mr. Yang Hua, President of the Company said: “I am glad that we seize the opportunity to acquire this asset. Since our listing, we have stuck to a value driven acquisition strategy to take opportunities. This transaction is a good example of such strategy.”

Marathon will retain a 10% interest in the block after the transaction. Block 32 is operated by Total SA of France, which owns a 30% stake and acts as the operator. Sonangol, Angola’s state-owned oil company owns 20%, while Exxon Mobil Corp. holds 15% and Galp 5%.

Credit Suisse services as a financial advisor to both CNOOC Ltd. and SINOPEC.
