Maersk Oil Buys Devon's Stake in Angola Block 16

Maersk Oil has agreed to purchase Devon's 15% interest in Angola Block 16 for an initial payment of US $70 million and future contingent considerations. The agreement is subject to closing conditions including government approval. Maersk Oil's interest in the block, which holds the Chissonga discovery, will increase to 65%, with Sonangol (20%) and Odebrecht (15%) as partners.
