Corallian Energy and its JV partners, Upland Resources and Baron Oil, signed in April 2020 a Work Sharing and Confidentiality Agreement with a large European E&P Company for licence P2478 in the Inner Moray Firth.
Under the terms of the agreement Corallian and JV partners agreed to cease marketing a joint farmout to industry until 30th September 2020, during which period the Interested Party would complete its own regional technical work and share its data and interpretations over the area with Corallian and JV Partners ('Exclusivity Period'). The Interested Party has requested a 4-month extension to the Exclusivity Period to 31st January 2021 to complete their evaluation which the P2478 Licensees have agreed to. Corallian and JV partners may further extend the Exclusivity Period with the Interested Party by mutual agreement until the 30th April 2020 should such Party commit to negotiate farm-in terms to earn an interest in the licence.
