“This acquisition represents an excellent strategic fit with our existing portfolio, adding competitive growth assets in core areas of the Norwegian Continental Shelf. It will further underpin Neptune’s Energy’s portfolio with broad operating skills in subsea development, drilling, production and engineering.” Neptune Energy CEO, Jim House, said in a company statement.
