The consideration for the acquisition consists of two milestone payments and a royalty based on volumes produced from the Verbier Upper Jurassic (J62-J64) reservoir oil discovery.
The acquisition, which is not subject to upfront cash payments, provides JOG with an opportunity to create significant value through potentially developing the Verbier discovery as part of the Greater Buchan Area (GBA) hub. Licence P2170 also benefits from multiple material exploration prospects that have high value potential through tie-backs to the proposed new GBA hub.
Andrew Benitz, CEO of Jersey Oil & Gas, commented: "I am pleased that JOG has completed this important step to acquire an additional interest and operatorship in the Verbier discovery together with material exploration upside to facilitate our plan to develop Verbier as part of our GBA development. We continue to make solid progress on concept select for the GBA and work closely with contractors, other area stakeholders and the OGA on this important project."
