BG Group to drill in offshore Newfoundland
Repsol has sold its stakes in three non-operated positions in offshore Newfoundland, Canada to BG Group, which is expanding its drilling activities into new basins.
“This provides the company with access to early stage exploration in a proven prospective basin ahead of the first well being drilled later this year,” BG Group said today.
The company’s equity stakes range from 10% to 25% in the blocks, which are located in the Atlantic Ocean, 200 km from St. John’s.
The three blocks are currently operated and majority-owned by Statoil.
