BG Group to explore Newfoundland

BG Group has announced that it has acquired three non-operated positions offshore Newfoundland from Repsol. This provides the company with access to early stage exploration in a proven prospective basin ahead of the first well being drilled later this year.

The blocks are located in the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 200 km from St. John’s, Newfoundland. This opportunity is in line with the company’s strategic exploration focus to enter new basins.
