Apache completes sale of Argentina Assets to YPF

Apache Corp.

Apache Corp. (NYSE, Nasdaq: APA) has completed the previously disclosed sale of its Argentina operations and properties to YPF Sociedad Anonima for cash payment of US $800 million plus the assumption of $52 million of bank debt as of June 30, 2013.

"This transaction essentially marks the end of a process that Apache began last year to rebalance its portfolio to focus on assets in North America that can grow more predictably combined with international assets that generate substantial free cash flow," said G. Steven Farris, chairman, chief executive, and president of Apache. "Going forward, Apache is committed to visible and repeatable production growth; fiscal discipline with a rate of return focus; and safe, efficient operations."
