Shell in Talks with BP over $250m Stake in North Sea Oil and Gas Field Shearwater

Published in Oil Industry News on Friday, 26 April 2019

Graphic for News Item: Shell in Talks with BP over $250m Stake in North Sea Oil and Gas Field Shearwater

The deal is valued at around $250m (£193m), sources told Reuters, and will almost double Shell’s share in the Shearwater venture.

The Anglo-Dutch major holds a 28 per cent stake in the field, while BP has 27.5 per cent. The remaining 44.5 per cent belongs to US giant Exxon Mobil.

BP declined to comment, Shell did not immediately respond to request for comment. It issued no comment to Reuters.

The two firms have been in discussions for weeks and are close to a deal, but it could still fall through, sources told the news agency.

Shell has already said it wants to expand a gas hub around the site around 140 miles east of Aberdeen.

It expects peak production at Shearwater to reach around 70,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Shearwater was first developed in 2000 after being discovered in 1988.

The sale would come in an environment where oil majors are selling off major assets in the dwindling North Sea.
