Equinor selger sine andeler i det landbaserte Bakken-feltet i USA
Equinor (OSE: EQNR, NYSE: EQNR) har besluttet å selge sine eierandeler i Bakken-feltet i delstatene Nord-Dakota og Montana til Grayson Mill Energy, finansiert av EnCap Investments, for et samlet vederlag på rundt 900 millioner dollar.
Transaksjonen dekker alt egenoperert og partneroperert areal, i alt 242.000 acres, og andeler i tilhørende midtstrømaktiviteter i Bakken. Bokført produksjon fra disse eiendelene i fjerde kvartal 2020 var 48.000 fat oljeekvivalenter per dag (ikke medregnet royaltyvolumer). Samtidig med denne transaksjonen vil Marketing & Trading i Equinor inngå en kontrakt med Grayson Mill Energy om kjøp av råolje.
– Equinor optimaliserer sin olje- og gassportefølje for å styrke selskapets lønnsomhet og gjøre det mer robust for framtiden. Ved å selge våre eierandeler i Bakken-feltet realiserer vi inntekter som kan anvendes på mer konkurransedyktige eiendeler i vår portefølje, og dermed skape høyere verdi for våre aksjonærer. I løpet av de siste årene har vi styrket sikkerheten, kostnadseffektiviteten og CO2-intensiteten i Bakken-feltet betydelig, og jeg er trygg på at Grayson Mill Energy vil fortsette dette arbeidet, sier Anders Opedal, konsernsjef i Equinor.
– Vi tar grep for å øke lønnsomheten i Equinors internasjonale olje- og gassvirksomhet. Dagens annonsering om at vi går ut av Bakken-feltet er et viktig steg i denne prosessen. Vi har samarbeidet tett med Grayson Mill Energy om å bevare arbeidsplasser og sørge for overføring av ekspertise på best mulig måte, sier Al Cook, konserndirektør for Utvikling og produksjon internasjonalt i Equinor.
Som en del av den avtalte transaksjonen vil alle Equinors feltansatte og et betydelig antall av støttefunksjonene som arbeider med Bakken-feltet ha muligheten til å bli overført til Grayson Mill Energy.
Transaksjonen trer i kraft med virkning fra 1. januar 2021. Den er betinget av alminnelige vilkår, inkludert myndighetsgodkjenning.
