06:23 EDTBPBP agrees to sale of interests in four Alaska North Slope assets
BP announced that it has agreed to sell interests in four BP-operated oilfields on the North Slope of Alaska to Hilcorp. The sale agreement includes all of BP’s interests in the Endicott and Northstar oilfields and a 50 percent interest in each of the Liberty and the Milne Point fields. The sale also includes BP’s interests in the oil and gas pipelines associated with these fields. The agreement does not affect BP’s position as operator and co-owner of the Prudhoe Bay oilfield nor its other interests in Alaska. BP also expects to submit a development plan for Liberty by the end of 2014. As a result of the sale and subject to approval, Hilcorp is expected to become the operator of the Endicott, Northstar and Milne Point oilfields and their associated pipelines and infrastructure. BP remains committed to its plans for increased investment at Prudhoe Bay, which have resulted from recent oil tax reform by the State of Alaska. The plans include adding two drilling rigs, one in 2015 and a second in 2016, for a total incremental $1B investment over five years. These activities are expected to account for 200 Alaska jobs and 30-40 additional wells being drilled each year, bringing a boost to both the company’s operations and the state’s economy. Together the assets included in the sale represent approximately 19,700 barrels of oil equivalent a day of net production for BP, less than 15% of BP’s total net production on the North Slope.The sale, which will be subject to state and federal regulatory approval, is anticipated to be complete by the end of the year. Financial details of the transaction are not being disclosed.

06:20 EDTBPBP not concerned over hostile takeover due to Macondo disclaimer, Bloomberg says
BP, which is allegedly readying defenses for potential acquisition offers, isn't concerned about a hostile takeover because of a disclaimer in its Macondo spill settlement that could put $12.6B onto the price tag, Bloomberg reports. A potential buyer may have to accelerate the payment of as much as two-thirds of the $18.7B in penalties BP agreed to pay the U.S. and several states, the report says, citing company filings. An option that provides the government and certain states the power to demand faster payment in a takeover basically hands them a veto over any deal, the report says. Reference Link
