In connection with the sale by TotalEnergies to Suncor Energy Inc. of the entirety of the shares of TotalEnergies EP Canada Ltd announced on April 27, 2023, ConocoPhillips has notified on May 26, 2023 TotalEnergies that it is exercising its preemption right to purchase the 50% interest in the Surmont asset held by TotalEnergies EP Canada Ltd.
TotalEnergies will receive from ConocoPhillips a cash payment upon closing of C$4.03B (about US$3B) and additional payments that could reach a maximum of C$440M (about US$325M) under specific conditions for its 50% non-operated interest in the Surmont asset and associated logistics commitments. Closing, subject to regulatory approval, is expected in the third quarter 2023.
As previously announced, the transaction with Suncor is subject to the waiver of its partner ConocoPhillips pre-emptive right.
