Statoil takes on offshore operatorship in Australia

Statoil continues to expand in Australia, with the award of 100% equity share in a large exploration permit located in the prolific Northern Carnarvon Basin on the Northwest shelf of Australia.

This is Statoil’s third asset in Australia, adding to the onshore operatorship in the Northern Territory’s South Georgina basin and four BP-operated offshore permits in the Great Australian Bight.

The permit WA-506-P covers an area of more than 13,000 square kilometres, situated 300 kilometres off Western Australia in water depths of 1,500-2,000 metres. The permit has been awarded to Statoil by the National Offshore Petroleum Titles Administrator (NOPTA) through the 2013 Offshore Petroleum Exploration Acreage Release.


“This award adds another large acreage position with high-impact potential to our global portfolio, in line with our exploration strategy. This is an untested part of a prolific basin, offering significant upside potential,” says Erling Vågnes, Statoil’s senior vice president for exploration in the Eastern hemisphere.
