Harbour Energy has secured an indirect stake in Santos of 15.1 per cent after striking an agreement with the oil and gas group’s Chinese shareholders, ENN and Hony Capital. Santos CEO Kevin Gallagher has advised that Harbour Energy has completed due diligence, although it has yet to make a formal offer for the oil and gas group. Santos shares closed at $A6.23 on 15 May, and analysts say Harbour Energy may need to increase its initial offer if it opts to make a formal bid.
