PGNiG Supply & Trading (PST), a member of the Polish Oil and Gas Company Group (PGNiG), becomes the exclusive recipient of natural gas produced in Norway by LOTOS Exploration & Production Norge (LOTOS Norge), a LOTOS Group company engaged in exploration and production activities on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
LOTOS E&P NORGE will participate in the 30th International Conference DRILLING-OIL-GAS AGH 2019 organised by The University of Science and Technology in Krakow, one of the leading technical universities in Poland.
On January 16th 2018, LOTOS Exploration and Production Norge AS (“LOTOS Norge”) was offered two new exploration and production licences by the Norwegian authorities in the APA 2017 round.
A new crude oil field discovered in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea opens up new opportunities for LOTOS Norge’s growth and adds to its production potential.
A breakthrough was made towards redevelopment of the Norwegian Yme field, in which LOTOS Norge holds a 20% interest. The faulty production platform has just been removed from the field, to facilitate further work on its full development.
Statoil, LOTOS Norge and Total Norge, which together hold the Utgard licence (formerly Alfa Sentral), have submitted the Plan for Development and Operation of the licence to the Norwegian and British regulators. Production from the Utgard field is scheduled to start in late 2019.
In the first quarter of 2016, LOTOS produced over 2.5 million barrels (ca. 350 thousand tonnes) of oil equivalent (boe), which translates into a daily production volume of almost 30 thousand boe. To compare, production in the first three months of 2015 amounted to some 1 million boe. Three-fourths of the volumes come from fields in Norway, while the balance was produced in the Baltic Sea and in Lithuania.
In February 2016, total production of crude oil by LOTOS Petrobaltic, LOTOS Norge and LOTOS Geonafta, which operate in Poland, Norway and Lithuania, crossed the mark of one million barrels.
LOTOS Exploration and Production Norge AS has entered into an agreement with ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Norway to acquire a portfolio of assets in the Sleipner gas field located in the North Sea.
The Extraordinary General Meeting of Grupa LOTOS S.A. to be held on September 8th 2014 will decide whether to approve increasing the Company's share capital by issuing new shares, which would be offered to the Company’s existing shareholders. LOTOS expects to raise approximately PLN 1bn through the issue. The proceeds will be used to finance the Company’s strategy, which envisages further investments to increase the refinery's complexity and step up hydrocarbon production. How much money is obtained from the issue will depend on the macroeconomic climate, capital market conditions, demand for the shares, and final terms and conditions of the offering.
LOTOS Exploration & Production Norge and PGNiG Upstream International have signed a letter of intent for collaboration in projects on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The companies are to work together in the review and pursuit of potential acquisitions, and will participate together in licensing rounds held by the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.
Following the drilling of an exploration well in the Trell prospect, the presence of crude oil was confirmed in the PL 102F licence area. LOTOS Exploration & Production Norge holds an interest in this licence, acquired in 2013 as part of the Heimdal portfolio. This marks the first time oil has been discovered in a Polish-held Norwegian licence area.
