Total enters Abu Dhabi concessions
PARIS, March 19, 2018 – Total has purchased stakes in two concessions offshore Abu Dhabi for USD 1.45 billion, the super-major announced on Sunday.
Total has received a 20% interest in the Umm Shaif & Nasr concession and a 5% stake in the Lower Zakum concession, where Eni bought in days ago. The purchase will increase Total’s output by 80,000 bopd this year, the company statement added.
