“We are pleased to have completed the acquisition of the UK North Sea assets from E.ON which strengthens Premier’s position in the UK North Sea, adding high quality assets at a compelling valuation of only $1.6/boe.

“The acquired assets have had a strong start to 2016, performing ahead of expectation, adding immediate cash generative production of over 17 kboepd and provide future opportunities to enable us to deliver value for our shareholders.”
