Divestment of Norwegian assets

Tullow Oil has taken the decision to divest its Norway business in order to focus on its core Africa and South America assets. In the second half of 2016, the divestment of the Norway business has progressed well, with the sale of four licences, including the Wisting discoveries, to Statoil and eight licences, which include the Oda asset, to Aker BP ASA, expected to be complete by the end of year. Tullow expects to conclude the disposal of its remaining Norwegian assets by the first half of 2017.
