Rex International Holding said its 65% indirectly owned subsidiary, Lime Petroleum Norway AS, has received approval from the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy for the acquisition of 10% interest in each of the two offshore licenses, PL 707 and PL 708, from North Energy ASA. Lime’s 10% interest in each of PL707 and PL708 will become effective from November 29, 2013.

The acquisition of the 10% interest in the two licenses is a result of the cooperation agreement between Lime and North Energy. Both concessions are located in the Barents Sea, in proximity to the coast on the Finnmark East platform. PL707 covers an area of about 982 square kilometers while PL708 covers an area of about 507 square kilometers.

Both licenses have undergone screening and analysis of seismic data using Rex Virtual Drilling. Analysis done with Rex Virtual Drilling indicates the presence of hydrocarbons in these concessions. These findings are supported by a previous technical discovery of oil and gas in the PL 707 license.
