Oil producer agrees deal to sell down holding in Lake Albert project
Thursday 12 Jan 2017 Author: Tom Sieber

Oil producer Tullow Oil (TLW), a one-time constituent of the
FTSE 100, is set to complete the long-awaited farm down of its stake in Uganda’s first ever oil development. The $900m transaction with French partner Total (FP:EPA) will see the company hand over two-thirds of its stake in the Lake Albert project, leaving it with 12%. This move should reduce cash requirements for the heavily indebted business. (TS)
