DONG E&P Norge AS (DONG Energy) divests its ownership shares in five producing Norwegian oil and gas fields to Faroe Petroleum Norge AS (Faroe). The fields are Trym, Oselvar, Tambar (including Tambar East) and Ula.

David Cook, Executive Vice President in DONG Energy, says: “It is very satisfying that we have reached an agreement with Faroe in respect of these five assets. This transaction is an important step towards optimising our oil and gas asset portfolio with a focus on high quality, low-cost assets.”

DONG Energy will continue as partner in the Norwegian fields Ormen Lange, Alve, Marulk and Gyda, and as operator of the Mjolner discovery.

Transfer of ownership to Faroe is subject to approval by Norwegian authorities among others and is expected to complete during the latter part of 2016.
