Apache Prices $3 Bln Notes Offering

Oil and natural gas producer Apache Corp. (APA: Quote) Tuesday said it is selling $3 billion worth debt notes, in order to fund the acquisition of Cordillera Energy Partners.

Apache is offering $400 million of 1.75% notes due in 2017, $1.1 billion of 3.25% notes due in 2022, and $1.5 billion of 4.75% notes due in 2043.

Proceeds to Apache, after deducting the underwriting discounts and estimated offering expenses, are expected to be about $2.96 billion.

Apache plans to use proceeds from the offering to fund the cash portion of Cordillera Energy Partners acquisition, repay Apache's $400 million of 6.25% notes due on April 15, and for general corporate purposes.

In January, Apache agreed to acquire privately-held Cordillera Energy Partners for $2.85 billion in cash and stock. The Cordillera transaction is expected to be completed during the second quarter.
