(PRESS RELEASE) PARIS, 27-Jun-2024 — /EuropaWire/ — TotalEnergies has expanded its presence in the offshore energy sector of São Tomé and Príncipe by securing a 60% stake and operatorship in Block STP02, as part of a deal with the Agência Nacional do Petroléo de S. Tomé e Príncipe (ANP-STP). The agreement also includes the transfer of operational responsibilities, with the deal pending final approvals from the appropriate authorities.

Block STP02, which spans an area of 4,969 km², is located about 60 km off the coast of Príncipe and lies in an emerging basin that has shown encouraging signs from recent seismic data. This block is strategically positioned next to Block STP01, where TotalEnergies also holds a 55% stake and shares interest with Sonangol (30%) and ANP-STP (15%).
