BP and BG Group have agreed the exchange of a package of UKCS assets, including interests in several producing fields and development prospects.
BP will trade its interests in the Elgin/Franklin fields, the Atlantic and Glenelg discoveries and the Neptune field, in exchange for BG's interests in the Brae fields, Braemar discovery, SAGE pipeline system and block 49/30a-N near the Sean field and will receive £21.5 million in cash.

For BP, the deal adds some 8 million barrels of proven, developed reserves in the mid North Sea and helps to consolidate our portfolio and improve productivity in one of our core areas.

The deal is subject to the usual DTI and co-venturer approvals and completion is expected in the next few months.
