Vår Energi took over ownership in 12 producing assets, three of which are operated by Neptune Norway and seven by Equinor, further strengthening its partnership with Equinor.

The merger plan between the companies be considered for final approval by the board of directors in the second half of April 2024.

The merger is expected to take effect around the end of the second quarter of 2024.
