TotalEnergies SE and its partner SOCAR (State Oil Co. of the Republic of Azerbaijan) have signed an agreement in which each will sell a 15% participating interest in the Absheron gas field to Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. (ADNOC).
After the transaction closes, TotalEnergies will own a 35% interest in Absheron gas field, SOCAR 35% and ADNOC 30%. The deal is subject to the approval by the relevant authorities.

“TotalEnergies is pleased to welcome ADNOC, one of its strategic partners, into the Absheron gas field, where production of the first phase started in early July, and which offers a significant further development potential to meet the growing gas demand,” said Nicolas Terraz, president of E&P at TotalEnergies.
