BP acquires additional interest in Block 2714A offshore Namibia in deal with Petrobras
- Completed a transaction whereby BP has acquired a further 20% equity interest in Block 2714A from Petrobras.
Chariot Oil & Gas notes that its partners in Southern Block 2714A, Petrobras and BP Exploration (Namibia), have completed a transaction whereby BP has acquired a further 20% equity interest in Block 2714A from Petrobras. Accordingly the ownership of Block 2714A now stands at Petrobras (Operator) 30%, BP 45% with Enigma Oil & Gas Exploration (Chariot's wholly owned subsidiary) remaining at 25%.
This change to the equity ownership does not affect the current programme for Licence 20, which contains the drill ready prospect Nimrod. As announced previously, the partnership plans to drill exploration well Kabeljou-1 on the high impact Nimrod Prospect in the second half of 2012.
Paul Welch, CEO of Chariot, commented: 'We are pleased to note BP's increased equity holding in Licence 20 and continue to look forward to the drilling of Kabeljou-1 in the second half of this year.'
