Faroe Petroleum, the independent oil and gas company focusing principally on exploration, appraisal and production opportunities in Norway and the UK, has mandated Danske Bank, DNB Markets and SEB to arrange a series of fixed income investor meetings commencing on 15 November 2017. Subject to market conditions, a senior unsecured bond issue of $100 million, with an expected tenor of five years may follow.
Following the success of Faroe Petroleum’s exploration, appraisal and corporate activities, the Company has built a strong and diversified portfolio of producing assets with expected net production of 13-15,000 boepd in 2017, as well as a number of high-quality development projects on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. Whilst there can be no certainty that a debt transaction will follow the Company’s investor meetings, any debt raised will support the Company’s stated goal of increasing materially its profitable production.
