 Ashley Heppenstall, President & CEO of Lundin Petroleum said: “The major focus of our 2015 capital budget will be the completion of our development projects on Boyla, Bertam and Edvard Grieg which will increase our production to 75,000 boepd.

“We remain firmly focused upon our exploration programme in Norway and Malaysia with a particular emphasis on the Utsira High and the Barents Sea areas where we have had excellent historical success.
