Libya: TotalEnergies Increases its Interest in the Waha Concessions
Paris, November 15, 2022– 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.
“With nearly 70 years of presence in the country, TotalEnergies is firmly committed to working alongside Libya’s National Oil Corporation to develop the Waha fields, provide its expertise in reducing gas flaring and support the country in its energy transition with the development of solar energy projects,” said Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TotalEnergies.
