Crescent Point Energy to Buy Some of Shell's Canadian Assets for $900 Million
By Kimberly Chin
Crescent Point Energy Corp. has agreed to acquire the Kaybob
Duvernay assets in Alberta, Canada, from a Royal Dutch Shell PLC
subsidiary for $900 million in cash and stock.
The deal consists of $700 million in cash and 50 million of
Crescent Point's shares, the company said. It will be financed
through Crescent Point's credit facility. Shell will own about 8.6%
of Crescent Point following the deal's completion.
The Kaybob Duvernay assets offer the Canadian light oil producer
"strategic entry into a premier and established liquids rich play,"
the company said.
Crescent Point plans to target a lower decline rate with the
assets and longer-term production of about 30,000 barrels of oil
equivalent per day.
The transaction is expected to close in April.
Crescent Point also said Wednesday it expects to generate excess
cash flow for the year of about $375 million to $600 million.
