08:07 EDTPXDPioneer Natural to sel 40% of Wolcamp Shale interest to Sinochem for $1.7B
Pioneer Natural has signed an agreement with Sinochem Petroleum USA LLC, a U.S. subsidiary of the Sinochem Group, to sell 40% of Pioneer’s interest in approximately 207,000 net acres leased by the company in the horizontal Wolfcamp Shale play in the southern portion of the Spraberry Trend Area Field for a total price of $1.7B. Sinochem will pay $500M in cash to Pioneer, before normal closing adjustments, and will pay the remaining $1.2B by carrying a portion of Pioneer’s share of future drilling and facilities costs. The transaction is expected to close during Q2. Pioneer will continue as operator. Sinochem has agreed to fund 75% of Pioneer’s portion of drilling and facilities costs after closing until the $1.2B of drilling carry is fully utilized. Pioneer and Sinochem have agreed to a development plan which forecasts the drilling of 86 horizontal Wolfcamp Shale wells during 2013, increasing to 120 wells in 2014 and 165 wells in 2015.

The firm also thinks Callon Petroleum (CPE) would be the most likely small to mid-cap acquisition candidate given its high quality core Midland acreage and relatively cheap valuation.
