Jersey Oil and Gas PLC (LON:JOG) is taking full ownership of Licence P2170, which hosts most of the Verbier discovery and is one part of the Greater Buchan Area (GBA) development project.

The company said the deal simplifies licence ownership ahead of the planned GBA farm-out process.

It sees Jersey acquire partner CIECO V&C (UK), a joint venture between Japanese firms ITOCHU Corporation and JOGMEC (Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation). The 12% stake in Licence P2170 is CIECO’s sole asset.

Jersey noted that the deal increases its ownership of multiple high-impact exploration opportunities including three drill-ready prospects - Verbier Deep, Wengen and Cortina
