Statoil Sells Interest in TAP to Snam

Statoil has agreed to sell its 20% interest in Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG to the Italian gas infrastructure company Snam SpA for a total consideration of EUR 208 million (USD 220 million).

This amount is for both Statoil’s shares in TAP and its pro-quota portion of the loans currently granted to TAP by its shareholders.

The total consideration will be adjusted at closing, Statoil said.

“We are pleased to announce this agreement with Snam which will realise value from our stake in TAP, of which we have been a part-owner since 2008. This divestment increases our financial flexibility and is in line with our strategy of portfolio optimisation and capital prioritisation,” says Jens Økland, executive vice president for Marketing, Midstream and Processing.

Statoil and Snam have agreed to undertake the transaction provided certain conditions are met. The transaction is expected to close by end 2015.
