OVL and OIL announce acquisition in the Rovuma Area 1 in Mozambique

NEW DELHI -- ONGC Videsh Limited (OVL) and Oil India Limited (OIL) have completed the acquisition of 10% PI in the Rovuma Area 1 offshore Block, Mozambique by acquiring 100% shares of Videocon Mozambique Rovuma 1 Limited, the company holding the 10% PI in the Area 1 from Videocon Mauritius Energy Limited.

On 25th June 2013, definitive agreements were signed with Videocon Mauritius Energy Limited to acquire this interest. The terms of the transaction remain broadly the same as per the earlier announcement.

Area 1 covers 2.6 million acres in the deep-water Rovuma Basin, offshore Mozambique and represents the largest gas discovery in offshore East Africa with estimated recoverable reserves of 35 to 65 Tcf. The partners in Area 1 include Anadarko (operator of the project), ENH (the NOC of Mozambique), Mitsui, BPRL, and PTTEP.

This marks OVL’s entry into this emerging world class offshore gas basin with significant future upside potential. Area 1 has the potential to become one of the world’s largest LNG producing hubs and is strategically located to supply LNG to the growing Indian gas market.
