Dentons, the world’s largest law firm, assisted Romgaz in contracting a €325 million loan facility to partially finance its acquisition of shares in ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Romania Limited (EMEPRL). Raiffeisen Bank granted the financing. EMEPRL holds 50 percent of the rights and obligations related to the Neptun Deep perimeter. This transaction will allow Romgaz to achieve the objectives in its development strategy for the period 2021-2030.
