NEW YORK -- Hess Corporation today announced that it has entered into an agreement to sell its joint venture interests in the Utica shale play in eastern Ohio to Ascent Resources–Utica, LLC for net cash consideration of approximately $400 million, effective April 1.

“We continue to focus our portfolio by divesting lower return, non-core assets as part of our strategy to deliver long term value to shareholders,” CEO John Hess said. “Proceeds from this transaction will be used to invest in our higher return growth opportunities in Guyana and the Bakken and to fund the company’s previously announced share repurchase program.”
