Cairn has entered into a farm-out agreement for the sale of a 10% interest in the Nova development offshore Norway.

ONE-Dyas Norge shall acquire 10% in the project by paying USD 59.5 million plus customary working capital adjustments on completion.

Following this transaction Cairn will retain a participating interest of 10% interest in the Nova development and reduce its capital expenditure to the end of 2021 in the Nova area by ~USD 110 million.

The Nova field development plan was submitted and approved in mid-2018 by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate with first oil targeted in 2021.

The transaction remains subject to written consent by the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, partner and third-party approvals.

As a result of the transaction, subject to approvals, the partners in these licences will be as follows:

  • Licences PL418/PL418B: Wintershall DEA (Operator) 45%, Spirit Energy 20%, Edison 15%, Cairn 10%, ONE-Dyas 10%;
