Reference is made to the stock exchange release dated 30 August 2022 regarding the agreements to form a subsea joint venture with SLB and Aker Solutions. Closing is subject to regulatory approvals.
Following clearance by antitrust authorities in Brazil, all regulatory approvals/clearances required to close the transactions have been obtained, including required clearances in Angola, Mozambique, Australia, Norway, the United Kingdom and the United States. All approvals/clearances obtained are unconditional.
The parties will continue to work to satisfy the remaining conditions for closing, and aim to close as early as practicably possible in the fourth quarter of 2023.
The joint venture is planned as a milestone in subsea production economics, helping customers unlock reserves, reduce time to first oil, lower development costs, and achieve decarbonisation goals. The three companies will bring together deep reservoir domain and engineering design expertise, extensive field-proven subsea production and processing technology portfolios, manufacturing scale and capabilities, and a comprehensive suite of life-of-field solutions to customers around the world.
