PTTEP acquires more shares in APICO LLC, drives forward Sinphuhorm Project development
PTTEP HK Holding Limited, a subsidiary of PTT Exploration and Production Public Company Limited (PTTEP), has signed a Share Purchase Agreement (SPA) to acquire 39% stake in APICO LLC from Coastal Energy Company (Khorat) Limited with the total transaction value of approximately USD 74 million. The deal will increase PTTEP’s share in APICO LLC to 72.8%.

APICO LLC currently holds 35% participating interest in Sinphuhorm Project of which PTTEP is the operator with 55% participating interest and ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Khorat Inc. holds the remaining 10% participating interest. Furthermore, APICO LLC also holds 100% participating interest in Block L15/43 and Block L27/43 which both are located in the northeastern region of Thailand. The transaction is expected to complete within the third quarter of 2019. After the completion, PTTEP’s stake in Sinphuhorm Project will, directly and indirectly, increase to a total of 80.48%.

Phongsthorn Thavisin, PTTEP President and Chief Executive Officer, said “this acquisition of additional interest in APICO underlines PTTEP’s growth strategy in expanding investment in Thailand. The deal will generate return on investment to PTTEP while also driving further development of Sinphuhorm Project to support electricity generation in northeast of Thailand.”

This is an acquisition of additional stakes in APICO after PTTEP has completed APICO’s share purchase transaction from Tatex Thailand in June 2019.

The Sinphuhorm Project covers Blocks EU1 and E5N in Udon Thani and Khon Kaen provinces. In the first half of 2019, the project’s average sales volume of natural gas was approximately 88 million cubic feet per day (14,487 barrels of oil equivalent per day) and average condensate sales volume was 289 barrels per day. Natural gas from the project is the main supply for the Nam Phong Power Plant in Khon Kaen which has been included in the latest national Power Development Plan (PDP) 2018-2037 to support economic and social development of Thailand. The Sinphuhorm Project’s concessions have been granted a 10-year extension by the cabinet in May 2019.


PTTEP is the E&P flagship of the PTT Group, Thailand’s national oil company. PTT Public Company Limited is one of ADNOC’s largest crude oil customers purchasing up to 100,000 barrels of various ADNOC crude grades per day and Thailand is the second largest economy in South-East Asia.


APICO LLC was incorporated in Delaware, USA in 2002 and is privately owned. APICO's mission is to build a portfolio of high quality gas producing and prospective assets in the Kingdom of Thailand through new concession applications, acquisitions and farm-in.
