Independent Oil and Gas said it had struck an agreement with CalEnergy Resource to farm out 50% of the company's Southern North Sea assets for an initial payment of £40m in cash. Under the terms of the deal, CalEnergy Resource (CER) would pay £40m on completion of the farm-out and up to £125m of the company's development costs, representing 80% of IOG's 50% share of core project costs, up to caps of £60m for Phase 1 and £65m for Phase 2 respectively. The core project comprised 410 BCF of 2P+2C reserves and resources across six discovered Southern North Sea gas fields. IOG also agreed to pay CER a royalty of 20.2% of its net revenues from the Phase 1 fields only, up to a cap of £91m over field life.
