CNOOC : Congo says Israeli investor Gertler's oil permits no longer valid

06/20/2021 | 07:54am EDT

KINSHASA, June 20 (Reuters) - Democratic Republic of Congo said exploration permits from companies controlled by Israeli investor Dan Gertler for two huge oil concessions near the eastern border with Uganda were no longer valid, but the companies said they still held the rights.

Congo's hydrocarbons ministry said in a letter dated June 16 and reviewed by Reuters on Sunday that the permits granted to two of Gertler's companies in 2010 for Blocks 1 and 2 near the Ugandan border had expired.

The companies have not entered into production in either of the two blocks, which are thought to contain potentially more than a billion barrels of oil.

The letter, sent to Oil of DRCongo, which oversees Gertler's oil interests in Congo, also said a production-sharing agreement reached in 2010 was being ended. It asked the companies to transfer all technical data and pay charges due under the contract. It did not say how much was owed.

A spokesperson for Oil of DRCongo said the status of the blocks could not be changed, because of a force majeure that was declared last year due to the government's lack of progress in securing a way to export the oil.

"The force majeure was subsequently confirmed in May 2021 by the State Council and therefore remains in place until the reasons for the force majeure are resolved, by law," the Oil of DRCongo spokesperson said.

"Oil of DRCongo remains committed to working with all parties to resolve the force majeure, identifying a competitive evacuation system, and bringing these assets towards production."

The U.S. Treasury imposed sanctions on Gertler and more than 30 of his businesses in December 2017 and June 2018, accusing him of leveraging his friendship with former Congo President Joseph Kabila to secure lucrative mining deals.

Gertler denies any wrongdoing.

Finding export routes from central Africa is a major challenge to bringing oil projects in the Albertine Basin into production.

Neighboring Uganda, whose adjacent oil blocks are being developed by France's Total and China National Offshore Oil Corporation, signed a deal in April with those companies and Tanzania to build a pipeline to the Indian Ocean. Congo is not a part of the deal. (Reporting by Hereward Holland Editing by Aaron Ross, Raissa Kasolowsky and Peter Graff)
