The completion of the SPA is conditional, inter alia, upon receipt of customary approvals. The long stop date for satisfaction or, where applicable, waiver of the SPA conditions is 31 July 2018.

"The sale of SOCO's interests in the Cabinda North Block further demonstrates our commitment to portfolio rationalisation, which forms a key part of the Group's strategy.

We look forward to the future and continue to assess new opportunities to further grow and strengthen the business".
