Enegi Oil Farms Out North Sea Block to Azimuth
Junior explorer Enegi Oil announced it has reached an agreement to farm out to Azimuth part of Block 3/23 in the UK North Sea. The block holds the Malvolio prospect, as well as a number of potential exploration opportunities.
Enegi said the deal will see Azimuth earn a 50-percent interest in the exploration area in exchange for the completion of an agreed work program that includes certain geological, geophysical and reservoir analysis that will use existing seismic and well data in respect of both the Malvolio area and the exploration area.
Enegi will retain a 100-percent working interest in the Malvolio area.
Enegi CEO commented in a statement:
"We are delighted to have reached agreement with the Azimuth team. We were only offered this Block just over three months ago and the fact that we are already moving ahead with our plans for it shows our desire to deliver and prove up the value that we believe is inherent not only in this asset, but also across our portfolio.
"We know the Azimuth team well and are delighted to be working with them on this project. They are a hugely experienced team backed by leading industry specialists with access to extensive resources, both in terms of data and people."
