Energean enters exclusive discussions to acquire Kerogen Capital’s 30% shareholding in Energean Israel Limited
On 7 December 2020, Energean and Kerogen entered into an agreement granting a 30-day period of exclusivity for the purposes of negotiating the Potential Transaction. The terms of the Potential Transaction remain subject to discussion and there can be no certainty that a transaction will proceed. Energean will update the market as and when it is appropriate to do so. The Potential Transaction will also require the approval of Energean’s shareholders, in accordance with the provisions of the Listing Rules, and regulatory consents. Energean anticipates funding the Potential Transaction without recourse to further issuance of equity to investors.

If an agreement can be reached on the Potential Transaction, Energean’s shareholding in Energean Israel Limited will increase from 70% to 100%.

Energean Israel Limited holds a 100% working interest in the Karish and Tanin leases, offshore Israel. As announced on 10 November 2020, a recent independent Competent Persons Report (“CPR”) by DeGolyer and MacNaughton (“D&M”) certified gross 2P reserves of 98.2 Bcm (3.5 Tcf) of gas and 99.6 million barrels ("MMbbls") of liquids across the Karish, Karish North and Tanin fields representing approximately 729 million barrels of oil equivalent. The Company’s flagship Karish gas development project is expected onstream in 4Q 2021.

Energean Israel Limited also owns a 100% working interest in four exploration blocks (Blocks 12, 21, 23, 31) offshore Israel that offer low-risk, near-infrastructure drilling opportunities to be targeted by its next drilling programme, which is expected to commence in early 2022. The D&M CPR estimated gross best estimate risked prospective resources across the Karish and Tanin leases and Block 12 of 62.0 Bcm of gas plus 33.4 MMbbls of liquids.

Energean Israel Limited also has an 80% working interest in a further four blocks in Zone D, offshore Israel.

Energean’s Board (the “Board”) remains committed to its strategy of delivering long-term sustainable cash flows that underpin our goal of paying a sustainable and meaningful dividend.

Our strategic ambition is to deliver value for all of our stakeholders through the responsible management of our current portfolio and the careful selection of growth opportunities, which are evaluated with reference to strict strategic, financial, operational and sustainability criteria and can be funded within Energean’s medium term leverage target, being net debt / EBITDAX of less than 2.0x. The Board believes that the Potential Transaction is well-aligned with these strategic objectives and ambitions.
