Statoil has signed farm-in agreements with Repsol, acquiring a 10% equity share in the Tayrona license and a 20% equity share in the Guajira Offshore 1 license.

"With the recent award of the COL4 license in the 2014 Colombia licencing round and the farm-in agreements with Repsol, Statoil is well positioned in deep water offshore Colombia. We are gaining access to a vast underexplored frontier area through early access at scale, which is in line with Statoil's exploration strategy," says Nick Maden, senior V.P. for Statoil' s exploration activities in the Western Hemisphere.

Petrobras operates the Tayrona license (40%), which includes the on-going Orca-1 exploration well. Repsol retains a 20% interest in the licence after farming down 10% to Statoil.

The remaining 30% is held by Ecopetrol. The license covers an area of 16,500 sq km and is located in water depths of 50 to 1,500 m.

Repsol operates the Guajira Offshore 1 (GUA OFF-1) license and retains a 30% interest after farming down 20% to Statoil. The remaining 50% is held by Ecopetrol. The license covers an area of 12,200 sq km and is located in water depths of 1,500 to 3,500 m.

Repsol has completed a 2D seismic survey in the license area. The next step includes a 3D seismic survey, which is expected to start later this year.

The deals are subject to the approval of the National Hydrocarbons Agency of Colombia (ANH).

In July 2014, Statoil announced that it had been awarded interest in the COL4 license. Repsol is the operator of the license with a 33.34% equity interest. Statoil and Exxon Mobil Exploration Colombia each hold 33.33% interests in the license.
