Exxon completes buy of Celtic Exploration

IRVING -- Celtic Exploration said Tuesday that ExxonMobil' s $2.52 billion acquisition of Celtic has closed and that its shares will be delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Exxon first announced the planned purchase of the Calgary, Alberta-based energy company in October. The Canadian government approved the deal last week.

Celtic' s output and proved reserves are heavily weighted towards natural gas. The transaction, which totals about $3 billion including debt considerations, is Exxon' s largest since it bought XTO Energy in 2010.

Separately, Exxon' s Imperial Oil subsidiary said it acquired a 50% participating interest in Celtic following the completion of the transaction.
