Serica is acquiring BP’s interest in the BKR assets in a deal back-dated to January, and the transaction is expected to complete in the third quarter.

As a result, the company is expected to see 40% of the net cash flow from the BKR assets for 2018, rising on a ‘stepped basis’ up to 100% by 2022.

Separately, Serica updated investors on operations to unblock the Lomond-Everest export pipeline which is impacting its Erskine field. It said that following deployment of specialist pumping equipment, “some communication” has been achieved across the blockage and the plan is to continue pressure pulsing until a significant breakthrough is achieved.

Additionally, it added that work is underway to come up with a permanent solution to the pipeline wax problem.
