Petrolia Noco has signed an agreement with Vår Energi ASA to acquire Vår Energi’s 12.2575% participating interest in the Brage field offshore Norway with an effective date of January 1, 2023.

Net production (12.2575% WI) from the Brage field in the first half of 2023 was 1.0 kboed and the remaining net reserves at year-end 2022 were 1.9 mmboe.

The transaction is subject to normal regulatory approval and is expected to be completed in Q4 2023, marking Var Energi's exit from Brage.

Financial details were not disclosed.
