ITEM 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
Magellan Petroleum Corporation (the “Company” or “Magellan” or “we” or “us”) is an independent energy company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, exploitation, development, production and sale of crude oil and natural gas. All amounts presented are in United States dollars. Amounts expressed in Australian currency are indicated as “AUD.”

Pty Ltd (“Magellan NT”) with Santos QNT Pty Ltd (“Santos QNT”) and Santos Limited (collectively the “Santos Entities”). The completed Santos SA resulted in Magellan becoming the sole owner of the Palm Valley Interests (as defined below) and of the Dingo Interests (as defined below), while the Santos Entities will become the sole owner of the Mereenie Interests (as defined below). In accordance with the terms of the Santos SA, the transaction is deemed to be effective as of July 1, 2011 (the “Effective Date”). Pursuant to the Santos SA transfer of the following assets are provided for:
Magellan NT's 35% interest in each of the Mereenie Operating Joint Venture (Petroleum Leases 4 and 5 (the “Mereenie Titles”) and associated property interests, related joint venture contracts (including a crude oil sales contract) and plant and equipment, subject to royalty obligations) and the Mereenie Pipeline Joint Venture (Pipeline License 2 and associated property interests, related joint venture contracts and plant and equipment) (collectively, the “Mereenie Interests”) to Santos QNT, giving the Santos Entities a combined 100% interest in the assets of each of the Mereenie Operating Joint Venture and the Mereenie Pipeline Joint Venture;
The Santos Entities' combined interests of 48% in the Palm Valley Joint Venture (Petroleum Lease 3 and associated property interests, related joint venture contracts (including a gas supply and purchase agreement “GSPA”) and plant and equipment, subject to royalty obligations) (collectively, the “Palm Valley Interests”) and combined interests of 66% in the Dingo Joint Venture (Retention License 2, associated joint venture contracts and plant and equipment, subject to royalty obligations) (collectively, the “Dingo Interests”) to Magellan NT, giving Magellan NT a 100% interest in the assets of each of the Palm Valley Joint Venture and the Dingo Joint Venture.
The cash consideration payable for the sale of the Mereenie Interests by Magellan NT is AUD $28.0 million. The cash consideration payable for the sale of the Palm Valley Interests by the Santos Entities is AUD $2.9 million. The cash consideration payable for the sale of the Dingo Interests by the Santos Entities is AUD $0.1 million. The net cash proceeds to Magellan totaled AUD $25.0 million, and Magellan is entitled to purchase price adjustments of approximately AUD $3.7 million.
For a period of 20 years after the Effective Date, the Santos Entities will pay Magellan NT a series of contingent payments (the “Bonus Amounts”) based on meeting certain threshold volumes of net sales of petroleum from the Mereenie Titles (“Threshold Levels”) set out in the Santos SA. If all Threshold Levels are achieved, the cumulative Bonus Amount shall be AUD $17.5 million.
