As previously disclosed, this transaction also includes contingent cash payments of up to US$16mn which are linked to asset performance and oil price. The closing of this transaction follows the satisfaction of all completed conditions, including the approval from the Government of Equatorial Guinea and Tullow and Panoro shareholders and other customary third-party approvals.

The sale of the Dussafu Asset in Gabon to Panoro is expected to complete in Q2 2021. A further US$5mn consideration is due be paid to Tullow after both transactions with Panoro have completed.
