The field is located in the East Central Graben of the UK Central North Sea. The agreement covers 23/11a, 23/16b and 23/16c blocks of the field but does not include operatorship of the development.

The filing of the Arran’s field development plan (FDP) to the UK’s Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) is scheduled for the end of next month.

Acquiting the stake by RockRose is subject to OGA approval and customary partner consents.
