STAVANGER, Norway – Statoil (OSE:STL, NYSE:STO) has farmed into a deepwater license operated by Hess (HES:NYSE) offshore Ghana.

The Deepwater Tano/Cape Three Points (DWT/CTP) concession, awarded in 2006, covers an area of 2,100 sq km (811 sq mi), just south of the license containing the producing Jubilee field.

Statoil will take a 35% interest in the license and carry a proportional share of GNPC’s interest, amounting to a total paying interest of 38.89%. Hess will retain a 55% working interest.
