New permit strengthens Statoil's position in New Zealand

New permit strengthens Statoil's position in New Zealand
The Norwegian company increases the number of its permits to four in New Zealand

Norway's Statoil agreed with Austrian OMV to acquire a 30 percent working interest in east coast basin of New Zealand, the company announced Wednesday.

Statoil said its position will further strengthen in New Zealand with the Petroleum Exploration Permit 57073.

The Norwegian oil company strives to increase over-seas investments in exploration and production projects following the downfall in its existing oil and gas reserves in its home country.

OMV will remain the operator with 70 percent working interest and the transaction is subject to regulatory approval.

"This is an underexplored area with the potential for multiple plays, offering a considerable exploration upside," said Nicholas Alan Maden, senior vice president for exploration, in a written statement.

The Permit 57073 is adjacent to permits 57083, 57085 and 57087 that were awarded to Chevron and Statoil in 2014, of which are all in the east coast of the country.

"We now hold a working interest in more than 46,000 square kilometers of exploration acreage in New Zealand, and all of these permits have staged exploration programs. This is in line with our exploration strategy of accessing at scale," said Maden.
