Lukoil, NewAge farm into Bowleven’s Cameroon offshore block

EDINBURGH, United Kingdom -- Bowleven, an Africa focused oil and gas exploration group, has delivered its strategic intent to sell part of its interest in the Etinde Permit, offshore Cameroon, by entering into a conditional agreement with Lukoil and NewAge.

Bowleven will reduce its interest in the Etinde permit from 75% to 25% and receive aggregate consideration of approximately $250 million comprising a $170 million cash payment at completion; a $40 million staged deferred cash payment due at Etinde development project FID and on completion of appraisal drilling; and a $40 million (net) carry for two appraisal wells.

Lukoil will acquire a 37.5% interest and NewAge will acquire an additional 12.5% interest in the Etinde Permit to increase its group holding from 25% to 37.5%. Camop, a wholly-owned subsidiary of NewAge, will become operator of the Etinde Permit following completion, allowing Bowleven to focus on its proven exploration skillset.

Bowleven will retain a 25% interest in the Etinde Permit, ensuring continued exposure to the considerable resource and future development potential of the acreage.
