Maurel Is Looking to Acquire ‘Distressed’ Oil Assets (Update1)
Share | Email | Print | A A A

By Tara Patel

March 31 (Bloomberg) -- Etablissements Maurel & Prom SA, a French oil explorer operating in Latin America and Africa, may buy “distressed” assets from companies hurt by a drop in crude prices, the company’s chief executive officer said.

“We are looking,” CEO Jean-Francois Henin said today during a conference call with reporters following publication of 2008 results. Spending on an acquisition would be limited to about 200 million euros ($265 million) and could require a bond issue, which would be done only for an “exceptional opportunity,” he said.

Energy industry investors are considering acquisitions as tumbling crude prices and sliding equity values make assets more affordable. The number of global oil and gas mergers and takeovers climbed 51 percent to 2,134 last year, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer said earlier this month.

“While no acquisition or merger is currently being studied, the company would take any opportunity that may arise,” Paris-based Maurel said in a statement.

Full-year net income fell to 62.5 million euros compared with 766.1 million euros the previous year, the company said in the statement. Stripping out the 2007 sale of Congolese operations to Eni SpA would have given a loss of 50.7 million euros in the base period, the statement said.

Sell Developed Sites

Maurel has sold assets in Colombia and the Republic of Congo as part of a strategy to search for, find and operate new hydrocarbon resources while selling proved and developed sites. The explorer intends to raise output in Gabon to replace lost production from the planned sale of its main asset in Colombia for $748 million toEcopetrol SA, the country’s state oil company. Maurel has also said it is in talks with potential partners for Caroil, a drilling business.

Maurel plans to pay out 137 million euros of dividends for 2008, according to today’s statement. This is the same level announced in an earnings statement Aug. 29, before the agreement to sell Hocol Petroleum Ltd. in Colombia.

A decision on the payout will be made by the board of directors April 28 and voted by shareholders at a June 18 meeting, Henin said today. “I see no reason to change the proposal,” he said in a subsequent interview. “Markets today are looking for cash at any price but it’s not in the social interests of the company” to pay out too much, he said.

More Gabonese Wells

Drilling on the Omoc-1 well in the Omoueyi exploration permit in Gabon resulted in a flow rate of 1,000 barrels a day and “confirms the potential” of the permit, Maurel said in a statement yesterday. Production from the Onal and Omko fields began simultaneously over the past month and crude began flowing through a pipeline to a terminal in Coucal operated by Total SA, the company said in a presentation to analysts.

The explorer will drill more wells in the area and plans to announce the results this week, the statement said.

Output in Gabon is expected to reach 18,000 barrels a day at the end of 2009, Henin said. Maurel’s overall production last year was 17,395 barrels of oil equivalent a day, according to today’s statement.

Investment this year is expected to fall to $314 million from around $800 million last year, Henin said.

Maurel today reported a provision of 36.8 million euros for 2008 from unauthorized trading positions on the foreign exchange market that were revealed Aug. 29. The amount is above the 35.8 million euros the company had said would be the maximum loss from the trades.

The trades were carried out by a single individual who was asked to leave the company, Maurel has said.
