IndianOil acquires 17% participating interest in Mukhaizna oil field in Oman from Shell
In a major fillip to the Corporation’s E&P business and aimed to boost IndianOil’s presence in the upstream sector in the Middle East, IndianOil has acquired 17% participating interest in Mukhaizna Oil Field (including the Marketing Rights for entitlement oil) by acquiring 100% equity stake in Shell Exploration & Production Oman Ltd. (“SEPOL”) from Shell Overseas Holdings Ltd. (“Shell”), for a transaction value of US$ 329 million. IndianOil has made this acquisition through its wholly owned subsidiary, IOCL Singapore Pte. Ltd. The effective date of the transaction is 1st January 2017.

The Mukhaizna Oil Field is the single largest producing individual oil field in Oman, contributing ~13% of total Omani crude production with current production of 1,20,000 bbl/d. It is also, the largest steam flood project in the Middle East. The field is operated by Occidental Mukhaizna LLC (45%). The other partners are Oman Oil Company S.A.O.C (20%), Liwa Energy Limited (15%), Total E & P Oman (2%) and Partex (Oman) Corporation (1%).

This is IndianOil’s first producing upstream acquisition in Oman which will further enhance its growth in the upstream sector in the Middle East. The acquisition also has a significant strategic importance to India, both in terms of augmenting India’s energy security as well as enhancing India’s stature in the global political and economic arenas.
