Selling interests on Danish continental shelf
This covers interests in five licences on the Danish continental shelf:
30% of 04/06, 05/06, 06/06
25% of 05/98
20% of 01/06
The interests are held by the fully owned StatoilHydro subsidiary, Saga Petroleum Danmark A/S, the ownership of which will be transferred to Bayerngas.
StatoilHydro does not consider offshore Denmark a core growth area for its exploration and production activities, and the divestment frees resources, both from exploration commitments and any future developments, for other major ongoing international projects.
