'We are very pleased to welcome GOC as a partner in the Dussafu licence,' said CEO Carl K. Arnet of BW Offshore. 'We are about to commence the next exciting phase of the development to increase oil production and identify additional reservoirs which will support long-term value creation from the Dussafu licence.'

GOC's interest will be retroactive from the date of First Oil, being 16 September 2018, and GOC shall assume 10% of historical costs as authorised by the government of Gabon. GOC will contribute to cash calls for the development and production of the field and adhere to the joint operating agreement and lifting arrangements that are currently in force between the contracting parties.

BWE's interest will be reduced to 81.667% and Panoro will continue to hold 8.333%. Tullow Oil Gabon has exercised its back-in right to the Dussafu licence. When this transaction is concluded the interests of parties in the production sharing contract will be:BWE 73.5%; Panoro 7.5%; GOC 9%; Tullow 10%.
