TOTAL ENERGIES INCREASES INTERESTS IN THE WAHA CONCESSIONS IN LIBYA
TotalEnergies has completed the joint acquisition with ConocoPhillips of the 8.16% interest held by Hess in the Waha concessions, in Libya. As a result of this transaction, TotalEnergies’ interest in these concessions is increased from 16.33% to 20.41%.
This acquisition reflects TotalEnergies’ commitment to support Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) in its efforts to restore and increase the country’s oil production, together with reducing gas flaring to increase supply to power plants for additional electricity supply. TotalEnergies and the NOC are also studying the development of dedicated solar projects to supply electricity to Waha production sites.
In parallel, and in order to increase the country’s renewable electricity supply, TotalEnergies has finalized with its partner Gecol the location and commercial terms to launch a 500 MWp solar plant project South of Misrata.
TotalEnergies has been present in Libya since 1954. In 2020, the Company’s production was 84,000boe/d.
