The new awards bring to total, interests in 13 licences in LPA’s portfolio, including three discoveries – Shrek, Apollonia and Falk/Linerle – with potential for development.

All licences in LPA’s portfolio are located in core areas close to infrastructure on the Halten Terrace and Nordland Ridge in the Norwegian Sea, and by the Utsira High area in the North Sea.

Mr Svein Kjellesvik, Executive Chairman of LPA, said, “The award of equity interests in four high quality assets to LPA is an affirmation of our role as a valued participant, along with best-in-class energy players, on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

"PL263F Apollonia is a significant add-on to our existing 20 per cent interests in the PL263D/E Apollonia licences, where a gas discovery was made in 2020. PL263D/E/F Apollonia, together with the Falk/Linerle discovery in PL1125, have potential for possible commercial field development in the near future.

"The Shrek discovery in PL838, in which we hold a 30 per cent interest, is also progressing towards a development decision.”

“LPA has done well in picking assets for its portfolio; and its successes with the Rolvsnes, Shrek and Apollonia discoveries in recent years attest to this.With the latest APA 2020, LPA is strengthening its portfolio with a continuous pipeline of exploration drill projects near infrastructure and three discoveries with commercial field development potential to unlock more value as contingent resources are added over time.”

According to the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy’s press release dated 19 January 2021, 30 companies have been offered ownership interests in a total of 61 production licences on the Norwegian Continental Shelf in the APA 2020 licensing round.

Of the 61 production licences, three are in the Barents Sea, 24 are in the Norwegian Sea and 34 are in the North Sea.
