-Through these awards we have strengthened our position further in our core areas around the Frøya Hights and the Utsira Hights and we have reinforced our position in the Northern areas. In addition we have been awarded licenses we see as strategic important to our portfolio and the awards of two operatorships are in line with our long term ambition to run continuous drilling operations on the Norwegian shelf. I am very happy with the work our employees have done and the results we have achieved, says Arne Westeng, managing director Bayerngas Norge.

Bayerngas pursues a long term strategy with the aim to establish a substantial producing portfolio and cash flow. The portfolio today includes six producing assets and three fields under development.
