DNO notes the announcement made by Faroe Petroleum today 5th December 2018, regarding a Norwegian Asset Swap with Equinor.

"This is a significant deal for Faroe, and we need to understand it before making a judgement. While Faroe has asserted this is not designed to stop the DNO offer, we need to ask if this is good value for a company seeking growth: to swap out of its high quality, large scale, core growth hub, Njord, operated by the national oil company of Norway, Equinor, and to take on instead mature and declining production assets - in a deal with Equinor itself. That is the test this deal needs to satisfy."
