Norway: Noreco Sells 20% Interest in PL378 to Talisman Energy


Norwegian Energy Company ASA has entered into an agreement to sell its 20% interest in PL378 to Talisman Energy Norge AS for a consideration of USD 43 million. The license contains the Grosbeak oil discovery.

“We are pleased to be part of the exploration success and to be able to monetize the Grosbeak discovery through this transaction. A core part of our business model is to sell discoveries and reinvest into further exploration and growth,” said Noreco’s CEO Scott Kerr.

Noreco has been partner in PL378 since it was awarded in the APA 2005 licencing round, and the Grosbeak discovery was made in 2009. Noreco’s exploration program for 2010 included a new exploration well on the PL378 Gnatcatcher prospect, and an appraisal well on the Grosbeak discovery. Following the transaction, the company’s exploration program will be adjusted accordingly.

Economic effective date of the transaction is 1 January 2010. The agreement is subject to approval from Norwegian authorities.
