BW Offshore has signed a letter of intent to acquire 30% of the Polvo oil field in Brazil. 

Following the ongoing sale of BP's stake in the Polvo field to HRT Participações em Petróleo S.A. (HRT), BW Offshore has the intention to acquire half of HRT's stake.

BW Offshore owns and operates the FPSO Polvo, operating under a firm contract until Q3 2014, with additional options until Q3 2022.

The Polvo oil field is in the Campos basin in Brazil. The field was brought onstream in 2007, with a 2013 year-to-date production of about 12,000 bbl/d.

The field installations include the FPSO Polvo, the Polvo A wellhead platform, with a drilling rig and an infield pipeline.

The definitive agreements are still subject to a due diligence process to be conducted by BW Offshore, and remains subject to regulatory, governmental and board approvals.
