Magnora ASA ("Magnora") has reached an agreement with NEO Energy and Dana Petroleum for redeployment of the Western Isles FPSO to the Greater Buchan Area (“GBA”) where start-up is expected in 2026.

On 16 November, Magnora entered into an agreement with NEO Energy and Dana Petroleum under which, ultimately, the current license agreement with the Western Isles Owners (the "License Agreement") will be transferred to the Greater Buchan Owners (NEO Energy (ZEX) Limited, as GBA Operator and GBA Owner (50%) and Jersey Petroleum, as GBA Owner (50%)).

Dana Petroleum and NEO Energy have agreed to end production from the Western Isles Fields which produce through the FPSO on or around 31 March 2024. Subject to regulatory and other approvals, the FPSO will then be acquired by NEO Energy for redeployment to the Greater Buchan Area. First Oil from the Greater Buchan Area is currently expected during 2026.

This agreement will permit the redeployment of the FPSO to the Greater Buchan Area and the transfer of the License Agreement on substantially the same terms for Magnora as for the Western Isles field.
