Norway: North Energy Buys 15 pct in PL 450 from Det Norske

North Energy ASA has purchased 15 percent of PL 450, Storebjørn, from Det Norske Oljeselskap ASA.

The license is located in the North Sea, Block 7/12, south west of the Ula field. Drilling is expected in the fourth quarter of 2011 with the jack-up rig Maersk Guardian.

North Energy will after the purchase hold a 15 percent share of the license, along with the operator Det norske with 60 percent share, and Dana Petroleum with 25 percent share.

The acquisition of PL 450 is an important part of North Energy’s plan and strategy for growth. The company’s focus areas are the Barents Sea and the Norwegian Sea. Purchase of licenses in the North

Sea contributes to a balanced portfolio of licenses where early development can take place, combined with the resources in the Barents Sea where the development horizon is longer, in spite of

the breakthrough in the north the industry now see the contours of. PL 450 is a license where North Energy has great faith in the discovery and early development”, says Erik Karlstrøm, CEO at North Energy.
