Meanwhile, ConocoPhillips in return will sell a subsidiary to BP that retains a 16.5% interest in the Clair Field, known to be one of BP’s core assets, located in the UK North Sea.

“These transactions are significant for ConocoPhillips because they continue our strategy of coring up our legacy asset base in Alaska, while retaining an interest in the Clair Field in the UK,” said Ryan Lance, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ConocoPhillips.

“We have a long history of creating value in Alaska and an ongoing commitment to invest in our legacy assets, as well as in the development of our recent exploration success. Likewise, we are committed to maximizing the value of our assets in the UK North Sea, including continued investment in our operated assets in the Central North Sea.”

The transactions were effective as of 1 July.
