VAALCO Energy pays $4.5M to ANPG
VAALCO Energy announced that the Company has paid $4.5M to Angola National Agency of Petroleum, Gas, and Biofuels, as National Concessionaire, under the terms of the previously announced Settlement Agreement executed earlier this year that finalized the termination of VAALCO's rights, liabilities and outstanding obligations for Block 5/06 in Angola. The Settlement Agreement provided for a cash payment of $4.5M from VAALCO to the National Concessionaire as well as the elimination of the receivable from Sonangol P&P that was related to joint-interest billings. The cash payment was made after the recent publishing of an executive decree from the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Petroleum. The financial impact of the Settlement Agreement was recognized in the first quarter of 2019.
