- Statoil (NYSE:STO) says its Johan Castberg oil discovery in the Arctic Barents Sea can be developed profitably even after Brent crude prices have tumbled more than $35 to below $80/bbl from a June high.
- Developing Castberg with an FPSO unit remains the cheapest option, according to a STO exec, who adds that nearby finds by Lundin Petroleum (OTCPK:LNDNF) have raised the possibility that a combined development including a new onshore oil terminal at North Cape can be commercially viable.
- Norway's Barents Sea, estimated to hold 40% of Norway’s undiscovered resources and seen as key to halt a long decline in the country’s crude production, lacks infrastructure including terminals and pipelines.

- Lundin Petroleum (OTCPK:LNDNF, OTCPK:LNDNY) says it made a significant discovery of up to 310M barrels of crude oil in the Alta prospect in Norway's Barents Sea, potentially accelerating development of the Arctic region’s resources.
- Lundin estimates the discovery holds 125M-400M boe, with 85M-310M barrels of crude.
- If the upper range is confirmed, Alta would be one of the biggest oil discoveries in Norway since 2000, even if well below the giant 2010 Johan Sverdrup discovery estimated at 1.8B barrels.

- Statoil (STO +0.7%) is seeking talks with Lundin Petroleum (OTCPK:LNDNF) to link the Gohta discovery to STO's Johan Castberg field to determine whether developing the Arctic fields together will make both projects viable by reducing the cost of connecting them to shore via a pipeline.
- The talks are still at a “working level” and aimed at finding a joint solution for infrastructure, Lundin CEO Ashley Heppenstall says.
- In June, STO again postponed a development decision for Johan Castberg after an exploration campaign aimed at boosting volumes and making the project more profitable uncovered crude in only two of five prospects.

- Spanish media says domestic oil company Repsol (REPYY, REPYF) is poised to make a bid of €2B ($2.7B) for Marathon Oil's (MRO) assets off Norway in a move to optimize its own portfolio.
- Sweden's Lundin (LNDNF, LNDNY) is among a lineup of 10 bidders angling for the MRO's portfolio, with possible participation by Asian players, according to the head of Oslo-based research firm Rystad Energy.
- Analysts say MRO could announce a deal for the assets as soon as mid-June after bids were submitted earlier this month.

- Lundin Petroleum (LNDNF) and Statoil (STO) have hit oil while drilling test wells at the giant Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea, an encouraging sign for the evaluation of its contents.
- Lundin found a 54-meter column of which 13 meters were of very good reservoir quality; partner Maersk Oil said the well test was "the best ever."
- STO encountered a 4.5 meter oil column at the edge of the field and will drill a sidetrack well to evaluate the section further.
- Johan Sverdrup may contain up to 2.9B boe which, if confirmed, would make it the third-largest oil discovery made offshore Norway.

- Norway is hoping for series of Arctic oil discoveries after a well produced crude from a previously unproductive layer of rock, as last month's Gohta find could open as many as 10 possible drilling targets in the surrounding area, Lundin Petroleum (LNDNY.PK, LNDNF.PK) says.
- The new play could revive interest in Norway’s Arctic after Statoil (STO) decided to delay the development of its Johan Castberg twin finds 65 km from Gohta because of rising costs, tax increases and lower resource estimates.
- A joint development of Gohta and Castberg could boost the commercial viability of both projects, Lundin's Norway head says; "It’s not impossible that we would sit down for a talk with Statoil at some point."
