The Swedish oil and gas exploration and production company Lundin Petroleum AB said on Thursday (7 September) that it has agreed to take over an 18.75% working interest in Marine XI Block offshore Congo.

Lundin Petroleum is acquiring the interest from the operator, SOCO International Plc.

The financial details of the transaction have not been revealed.

"Our entry into Congo Brazzaville exemplifies our ongoing efforts to secure access to oil and gas resources in highly prospective and under-explored areas. We are confident that the application of new exploration and development technologies will prove up material reserves in the Block," commented Ashley Heppenstall, president and CEO of Lundin Petroleum.
