The companies expect completion of the transaction in the first quarter of 2011, subject to Norwegian governmental approval.

The transaction includes Marathon's 20 percent interest in PL 025 (Gudrun field development) and PL 187 (Brynhild discovery), and 12.5 percent interest in PL 048E (Eirin discovery). Marathon has no production or booked proved reserves associated with these licenses.
