LONDON – BP has agreed to sell its 50% interest in the Shell-operated Sean gas field in the UK southern North Sea to SSE for $288 million.

The deal is expected to be completed during the first half of next year, subject to regulatory approval. BP’s current net production from Sean is about 18,000 boe/d.

Over the past two weeks the company has completed the sale of its non-operating stakes in the Alba and Britannia fields in the UK central North Sea to Mitsui, and in the Draugen field in the Norwegian Sea to Shell.
