Endeavour Energy UK Being Acquired by New North Sea Focused E&P
Waldorf Production Limited, a newly formed private oil and gas company based in Manchester, has announced it is acquiring Endeavour Energy UK Limited for an undisclosed sum.
According to a release emailed to Rigzone, the acquisition marks Waldorf’s entry into the UK North Sea, “firmly establishing the company as a full-cycle E&P company with a material production through its non-operated interests in the Alba, Bacchus, Bittern and Enoch fields.”
The company also has interest in the Columbus field development.
“We are excited to take on the high-quality assets and personnel of Endeavour,” said Aaditya Chintalapati, Waldorf’s chief financial officer. “We believe the North Sea continues to provide significant opportunities for small E&P companies such as ourselves. We look forward to working closely with all stakeholders to help manage these assets in a safe and efficient manner.”
In March of 2018, Reuters reported that Endeavour Energy UK had begun selling its North Sea oil and gas assets for $550 million.

Waldorf stated the acquisition is funded through a mix of new equity provided mainly by Norwegian private investors and debt financing by Sculptor Capital Management.
