HOUSTON (ICIS)--ConocoPhillips has completed the sale of its Trinidad and Tobago Holdings subsidiary to the National Gas Company (NGC) for $600m (€450m) plus customary adjustments, the US-headquartered oil and gas major announced on Friday.

Trinidad and Tobago Holdings holds a 39% interest in Phoenix Park Gas Processors Limited (PPGPL), which operates a gas processing and natural gas liquids fractionation facility in Point Lisas, Trinidad.

ConocoPhillips expects to recognise an after-tax gain of approximately $290m for the sale, which is part of the company’s strategy of divesting nonstrategic assets to focus on strengthening its portfolio.

Trinidad and Tobago state-owned NGC purchases, transports and sells natural gas to industrial and commercial users.
