    Hess has agreed to sell its Thailand assets to PTTEP for $1 billion. Under the agreement, PTTEP will acquire a 15% stake in the Contract 4 gas field off Songkhla Province and a 35% stake in the Sinphuhorm gas field located in the Udon Thani and Khon Kaen provinces.

    · Production approximately 387 MMcf/d of natural gas and 17.5 Mbbl/d of condensate

    · 2P reserves of 461 MMBOE

    PTTEP President and CEO Tevin Vongvanich said, "The acquisition of Hess Corporation's interests in Contract 4 and Sinphuhorm Projects is a strategic fit to PTTEP growth strategy by adding producing assets, accretion of volume growth and reserves, and strengthening our investment in Thailand".

    In Jan-2014, Hess announced the sale of approximately 74,000 acres of its dry gas acreage in the Utica Shale for $924 million.

    In Jan-2014, Hess announced the completion of sale of its Pangkah assets to PT Saka Energi Indonesia.
