The other assets acquired include a 10% interest in the Handcross prospect in block 204/19c West of Shetlands plus two other licenses in the area, 100% interest in three 23rd Round Licenses and one wholly owned license awarded in the recent 24th Round. A full list is given below.
"This acquisition adds significant potential to areas identified by Gaz de France as key to our expansion in the Central North Sea and West of Shetlands areas of the UKCS. These interests reinforce Gaz de France's ambition to target medium risk assets in the North Sea." said Mark Hughes, Managing Director of GDF Britain Ltd.
