Houston March 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Talos Energy Inc. (“Talos”) (NYSE: TALO) today announced that it has entered into an agreement for the sale of its wholly owned subsidiary, Talos Low Carbon Solutions LLC (“TLCS”), to TotalEnergies E&P USA, Inc. (“TotalEnergies”) for a purchase price of $125 million plus customary reimbursements, adjustments and retention of cash, combined totaling approximately $148 million. The transaction was based on an effective date of January 1, 2024 and will close later today. Talos intends to use the proceeds from the sale to immediately repay borrowings under its credit facility and for general corporate purposes.

The sale includes Talos’s entire carbon capture and sequestration (“CCS”) business, including its three projects along the U.S. Gulf Coast: Bayou Bend CCS LLC, Harvest Bend CCS LLC (“Harvest Bend”) and Coastal Bend CCS LLC (“Coastal Bend”). Talos may realize additional future cash payments upon achievement of certain milestones at the Harvest Bend or Coastal Bend projects or upon a subsequent sale of these projects by TotalEnergies. Robin Fielder, Talos Executive Vice President, Low Carbon Strategy and Chief Sustainability Officer, will continue to serve in her role for a transition period before leaving Talos to pursue other opportunities.

Talos President and Chief Executive Officer Timothy S. Duncan stated: “Since TLCS’s inception, we have successfully applied our energy expertise as an early mover aimed at developing decarbonization solutions along the U.S. Gulf Coast. Strong market interest during our capital raise provided the strategic option to fully monetize the business to TotalEnergies, an established global leader in CCS development. Robin and our entire CCS team did an outstanding job crystallizing value for Talos shareholders for a strong financial return. The transaction will further enable Talos to prioritize cash flow generation and optimal capital allocation in our core Upstream business. We are also continuing to explore business development and strategic M&A opportunities.”

Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC served as financial advisor to Talos and Latham & Watkins LLP served as legal advisor to Talos.
