Beach Energy Buys Origin's Lattice in $1.25 Billion Deal
The agreement will boost Beach's proved and probable reserves by 200 percent.

The deal to buy Lattice comes nearly two years after Beach bought Drillsearch Energy Ltd. for A$384 million to increase its exposure to energy assets in central Australia's Cooper Basin.

Beach shares, which have declined 2.9 percent this year, remain in a trading halt while its share sale takes place Thursday and Friday. Origin shares rose as much as 2.7 percent in Sydney to A$7.65, before trading at A$7.53 at 12:45 p.m. local time. The benchmark S&P/ASX 200 index added 0.2 percent.
