ConocoPhillips Sells Syncrude Stake to Sinopec

change text size

ConocoPhillips has completed the previously announced $4.65 billion sale of its 9.03 percent interest in Syncrude with subsidiaries of Sinopec International Petroleum Exploration and Production Company (SIPC).

"Completion of this transaction is an important step in our $10 billion divestiture program," said Jim Mulva, ConocoPhillips chairman and chief executive officer. "The sale of the Syncrude interest, an oil sands mining operation north of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada, is just one part of ConocoPhillips' plan to create value for shareholders through a continued focus on disciplined capital investment, a strengthened financial position, improved returns on capital, and growth in shareholder distributions while growing production and reserves per share."

Credit Suisse acted as the sole financial advisor to ConocoPhillips while Osler, Hoskin and Harcourt acted as the Houston-based company's legal counsel for this transaction.
