BP Signs Onshore Oil Deal with Abu Dhabi Worth $2.22 Billion

Saturday, 17 December 2016 09:16 AM EST

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Oil giant BP PLC has agreed to an onshore oil deal with the Mideast emirate of Abu Dhabi worth $2.22 billion following years of negotiations.

A unique aspect of the deal, signed Saturday, involves BP creating new stock worth 2 percent of its market value to be held by the Abu Dhabi government as part of the deal.

The deal grants BP a 10 percent stake in Abu Dhabi's ADCO onshore oil concession for 40 years. Other foreign companies with stakes in the concession are France's Total SA, Japan's INPEX Corp. and GS Energy of South Korea.

Oil-rich Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

BP has been in Abu Dhabi since 1939. In 2014, its stake in the onshore concession expired, leading to years of negotiations.
