As part of these arrangements, an exclusive option has been granted to DEA for the acquisition of a non-operated interest of up to 50% in Karoon’s five Santos Basin offshore exploration blocks, including the Echidna and Kangaroo discoveries, exercise of such option being subject to satisfactory due diligence and agreement of terms.

Managing Director Robert Hosking said: “This agreement is significant in the context of realizing Karoon’s strategic ambitions to acquire meaningful oil production in Brazil. Having such a high quality, well capitalized partner in our corner will significantly assist the company to achieve this goal.”

“DEA is a German based international oil and gas company with full lifecycle capabilities, which is owned by a well-capitalized investment company LetterOne Holdings S.A., based in Luxembourg. DEA has excellent operational capabilities with significant production and earnings, along with ambitious growth strategy making them a very good strategic fit for Karoon.”
