Sound Energy's sale of Tendrara gets boost with offtake agreement

Sound Energy PLC (LON:SOU) has signed a memorandum of understanding to sell natural gas from its Tendrara licences to Morocco’s state power company.

A detailed gas sales agreement is still under negotiation, but Sound said this is a binding agreement and the ongoing talks will incorporate the MOU.

The aim is to get a final agreement signed by the end of the year.

This agreement covers the first 0.5 billion cubic metres (bcm) per annum - approximately 48.4 million cubic feet per day (cf/d) - from Tendrara with payment for any production above this to be part of the final gas sales agreement.

Sound will also get a fixed price for a minimum annual volume of 0.3 bcm per annum (approximately 29MMscf/d).

That will lead to first-year gross revenues of US$84mln with the fixed price element designed to give more certainty when it comes to arranging the funding needed for the hook-up infrastructure.

Sound put its East Morocco operations up for sale earlier this year after two new wells failed to achieve commercial rates of gas production.

Shares in Sound were 2.8% higher at 7.30p in early afternoon trading.
