The previous plan for the exploitation of the Sedigi field was devloped per the terms agreed to in the 1988 SEERAT Convention betweedn the Republic of Chad and the Consortium (Exxon 40%, Shell 40%, Elf 20%). The convention required that the Sedigi field facilities would be owned 100% by the Consortium, and that the pipeline and refinery would be owned and operated by "Societe d'Etude et d'Exploitation de la Raffinerie Tchadienne" (SEERAT), a company owned 51% by the Consortium, and 49% by the Chad government.
