ConocoPhillips has completed a previously announced acquisition of Anadarko Petroleum' 22% lease interests in the Western North Slope of Alaska following receipt of approvals.
ConocoPhillips now has 100 percent interest in approximately 1.2 million acres of exploration and development lands, including the Willow discovery. Approval of the assignment of the lease interests was finalized on May 30, 2018.
The previously announced price of $400 million before customary adjustments was paid in the first quarter of 2018. The expenditure, net of customary adjustments, will be reported as capital in the second quarter of 2018.
In the first quarter of 2018, production associated with the acquired 22 percent lease interests was 11 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (MBOED).
The expected impact on second-quarter production is 5 MBOED based on a May 17, 2018 start date. This production was not included in prior guidance.
