These agreements cover work required to receive consent from the Department of Energy & Climate Change (“DECC”) for the transfer of operatorship, assignment of the interests, and other regulatory approvals to enable Iona to operate the two fields and the associated EAGLES pipelines which transport production to the Bacton terminal.
