Offshore staff

READING, UKBG Group has acquired non-operated interests from Repsol in three blocks offshore Newfoundland.

All are operated by Statoil, and are around 200 km (124 mi) from St. John’s. The first well is due to be drilled later this year.

BG says the deal gives it access to early-stage exploration in a proven prospective basin.
