Pete Landau, Executive Director for Range Resources, commented: "Along with our recently announced corporate financing and the renewal and restructuring of our Trinidad concessions, divestiture of the Texas assets is consistent with the company's stated strategy to accelerate growth of production and cash flow in Trinidad while expanding the Range portfolio within select Latin American markets.
He added: "Sale of the company's Texas properties allows us to monetize significant gains from an area that has already reached payout and to redeploy proceeds from the sale into our core international areas."
Range Resources' share price was up 2.12% to 5.31p at 10:28 on Monday.
