NRA, KWM and Ashurst act on gas deal

NRA, KWM and Ashurst act on gas deal

Norton Rose Australia, King & Wood Mallesons and Ashurst have acted on a US$520 million oil and gas deal.

Firms: Norton Rose Australia (SK E&S), King & Wood Mallesons (ConocoPhillips), Ashurst (Santos) 

Deal: Purchase of a stake in the Caldita and Barossa gas discoveries in the Timor Sea

Area: Oil and gas

Value: US$520 million

Key players: The Norton Rose Australia team was lead by Alex Cull, head of the Australia oil and gas practice

Deal significance: The deal involves SK E&S (part of South Korea's SK Group) acquiring a 37.5 per cent share in two permits from subsidiaries of ConocoPhillips and Santos. SK E&S will then have an option to buy an additional 12 per cent stake following the drilling of three appraisal wells. Both onshore and floating LNG concepts will be considered for commercialising the gas. This transaction is the first step in SK E&S’ initiative to vertically integrate its natural gas business and will enhance South Korea’s energy independence. The parties signed on 7 June 2012. J.P. Morgan acted as exclusive financial advisor to SK E&S.
