As part of this transaction, 153 employees will transfer from Shell to OKEA.OKEA’s CEO, Erik Haugane, said: “We are very pleased with the work that we have accomplished with Shell since the signing of the agreement on 20 June 2018. Thanks to our comprehensive and dedicated work together, we are able to close this transaction on schedule. This is the beginning of a new chapter for OKEA, as operator of one of the most prestigious fields on the NCS.”Rich Denny, Managing Director of A/S Norske Shell, said: “Today’s deal completion was achieved despite a tight timeline from the sales and purchase agreement in June 2018. It was made possible by good collaboration between Shell and OKEA and with constructive dialogue with the Norwegian Authorities.”This deal was part of Shell’s global $30 billion divestment program.Offshore Energy Today Staff
