Repsol & Sinopec Form an Alliance in Brazil

Source: 10/1/2010, Location: South America

Repsol and China’s Sinopec have entered into an agreement to jointly develop the projects of Repsol Brasil, the upstream subsidiary of Repsol in Brazil, creating one of Latin America’s largest energy companies, valued at $17.773 billion.

Repsol Brasil’s assets are currently valued at US$10.664 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, Repsol Brasil will increase its share capital by issuing new shares to which Sinopec will fully subscribe. On completion of the transaction, Repsol will hold 60% of the shares of Repsol Brasil while Sinopec will hold 40% of the shares.

The injection of funds generated by this transaction will allow Repsol Brasil to fully develop all of its current projects, which include some of the world’s largest exploratory discoveries in recent years.

The agreement between Repsol and Sinopec involves full collaboration in the development of the existing projects in Brazil, and allows for both companies to continue expanding their activity in that country jointly or independently. The agreement is subject to the approval of the competent authorities.

For Repsol Chairman Antonio Brufau “the deal is a good reflection of the value created by the investment of technical, human and material means by Repsol in exploration, particularly in Brazil’s pre-salt offshore in the last few years.”

“We are very pleased to share the development of Repsol’s Brazilian subsidiary with an internationally renowned and experienced partner as is Sinopec. Together we can help expand business relations between our countries,” Brufau added.

Brazil’s offshore boasts one of the world’s fastest-growing oil and gas reserves. The deal highlights the enormous international interest in this historic moment for Brazil, and particularly for the Santos Basin pre-salt activity led by Petrobras.
