Statoil completes acquisition of stake in Santos basin license

Statoil ASA reported completion of a transaction that gives it a 66% stake and operatorship in the BM-S-8 license in the Santos basin offshore Brazil (OGJ Online, July 29, 2016).

The license contains a substantial part of the 2012 Carcara presalt oil discovery.
