Premier Oil provides trading and operations update

The Tolmount Project is a development-stage gas field project with Dana and Premier Oil each having a 50 percent stake in the project.

Production from the Shearwater field stood at around 14,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in 2019.

The position was revealed as a hedge against Premier's debt.

In a string of announcements today, Premier's partner in the Sea Lion project off the Falklands Islands, Rockhopper, said they had signed a preliminary deal for Navitas Petroleum to buy a 30% stake. The hub started production in 1996.

"These acquisitions are materially value accretive for Premier and are in line with our stated strategy of acquiring cash generative assets in the UK North Sea".

Durrant said the company was also "pleased" to have consolidated its interest in the high-return Tolmount development, where it saw material upside. "We look forward to realizing the significant long-term potential of the Andrew and Shearwater assets through production optimization, incremental developments, and field life extension projects". "The cash flow generated from the acquired assets will also accelerate the deleveraging of Premier's balance sheet". On Tuesday, the firm said 2019 production was 78,400 barrels per day, at the upper end of guidance of between 75,000 barrels and 80,000 barrels. Premier said it intends to sell the newly acquired interest to Kellas Midstream.
