- 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.

- Development of the North Sea's giant Johan Sverdrup oilfield will be delayed by a year, to late 2019 rather than Q4 2018, as the project continues to grow in complexity and cost.
- Norway's Statoil (STO), Det norske (DETNF) and Petoro, Sweden's Lundin Petroleum (LNDNY) and Denmark's Maersk Oil were expected to announce this month which type of installation they would use to develop the field.
- The first phase of the project is now expected to cost $16B-$21B, more than had been anticipated.
- Analysts say the present value of Johan Sverdrup has been reduced by ~20%, 12% due to lower reserves and 8% due to the delay.

- 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."

- The field, whose resources are estimated at 1.7B-3.3B boe by partner Lundin Petroleum (LNDNY.PK), is due to be brought on stream as a phased development from 2018.
