Gulf Keystone Appoints Advisers on Akri-Bijeel Sale

Gulf Keystone has announced that it has appointed Strand Hanson Limited and Perella Weinberg Partners UK LLP as Joint Corporate Advisers with immediate effect.

Working alongside Strand Hanson, Perella Weinberg Partners will be jointly responsible for coordination of and advice on the sale of the Company’s 20 per cent working interest in the Akri-Bijeel block in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, which is part of the Company’s Forward Strategy announced on 14 September 2011.

Gulf Keystone has a 20 per cent working interest in the Akri-Bijeel block operated by Kalegran Ltd., a 100 per cent subsidiary of MOL Hungarian Oil and Gas Plc., which holds an 80 per cent working interest in the block.

The operator’s P50 resource estimate for the Bijell discovery is 2.4 billion barrels of oil-in-place, while the ongoing 2012/13 exploration and appraisal programme is targeting existing and identified hydrocarbon prospects in the Akri-Bijeel block.
