Repsol SA has agreed to sell about 95,000 net acres of oil and gas producing land in Alberta to Canada Pension Plan Investments Board-backed Teine Energy, three sources familiar with the plan told Reuters on Tuesday.
The Spanish oil major will fetch up to C$400 million from the sale, one of the sources said.
Repsol and Teine have applied for regulatory approvals for the deal, and anticipate receiving those by the end of September, the sources said. They cautioned that there is no certainty that the Alberta regulators will allow the proposed transaction, and the deal could still fall apart.
CPPIB declined to comment while Repsol and Teine Energy did not respond to requests for comment.
