JOGMEC Provides Equity Financing to ITOCHUís Project

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 8/15/2017, Location: Europe

Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC) will provide equity financing to CIECO V&C (UK) Limited (CIECO V&C), a wholly owned subsidiary of ITOCHU Corporation (ITOCHU), which holds a 12% participating interest in the exploration licence P2170 area (Blocks 20/5b and 21/1d) offshore United Kingdom.

In December 2014, ITOCHUís wholly owned subsidiary, CIECO Exploration & Production (UK) Limited (CIECO UK), was awarded an exploration licence P2170 (Block 20/5b and 21/1d) on the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS) jointly with Trap Oil Limited (now a wholly owned operating subsidiary of Jersey Oil & Gas Plc) as a result of the UK 28th Offshore Licensing Round. The partners strategically farmed-out an operating 70% interest to Statoil (U.K.) Limited in August 2016, leaving CIECO UK a 12% interest.

JOGMEC will provide equity capital covering up to 50% of the exploration expenditures incurred by CIECO V&C, established dedicatedly for this purpose and assigned the interest in the blocks by CIECO UK.

This project with highly promising potential is expected to accelerate the diversification of Japanís crude oil import if successful. In addition, JOGMECís support to CIECO V&C will enrich ITOCHUís portfolio in the UKCS coupled with the Western Isles Development Project due to start oil production within this year where CIECO UK enjoys JOGMECís loan guarantee programme.
