Oil company BP said it would sell its interest in the Sean gas field in the UK North Sea to British utility SSE for $288 million (177.8 million pounds), as part of its strategy to sell its stakes in non-operated North Sea assets.
The sale of BP's non-operated 50 per cent stake in Sean will give SSE access to total net proven and probable reserves of about 1.7 billion therms over the life of the field.
SSE said in a statement that there was also a possibility of additional resource through infill drilling.
