INEOS completes acquisition of UK North Sea gas fields from DEA

INEOS has completed the purchase of the North Sea natural gas assets of DEA Deutsche Erdoel AG, which is owned by L1 Energy. The platforms, infrastructure, and team that runs them will form part of the new INEOS Breagh business division that will be based in London.

The transaction includes interests in the Breagh and Clipper South gas fields in the Southern North Sea. The annual production from the fields acquired in this deal account for 8% of the UK’s annual gas production, enough gas to warm 1 in 10 British homes.  

As part of the company’s ongoing strategic business planning, INEOS AG has set up a new oil and gas subsidiary and is working with a number of North Sea oil and gas professionals. This group will continue to review potential opportunities in the North Sea to assess their suitability in the development of the business.
