HRT signs Namibian farm-out

Brazilian independent HRT told investors Tuesday it had reached an agreement to sell part of its stake in Namibian oil blocks, but did not disclose its new partner.

"We have received a few offers, and we have reached a commercial agreement for one of them," said Wagner Peres, chief executive of HRT America, said on a conference call according to Dow Jones. "We are making significant progress on this front."

HRT has been working for months to sell a stake in the company's offshore Namibia blocks.

HRT holds stakes in 12 blocks off the coast of the west African nation, operating 10 of the blocks.

The Namibia stake sale would follow a similar deal reached last year with TNK-BP, which purchased a 45% stake in HRT exploration blocks in Brazil's Amazon region.

HRT is still analyzing other possible offers for the blocks after reopening a data room that companies use to evaluate three-dimensional seismic surveys obtained by the company, Peres said.

HRT expects to drill its first well off the coast of Namibia in the first quarter of 2013, Peres said.

"Transocean confirmed that we will receive the Transocean Marianas submersible sometime in January," the executive said.

It will take 22 days to relocate the drilling rig from offshore Ghana to Namibia, with an additional 21 days needed for an inspection of the rig, Peres added.

"As we speak, HRT is drill-ready," Peres said. "We can start at any time the rig becomes available to us."

HRT shares fell 2.5% to 5.76 reais in trading on Tuesday on Sao Paulo's BM&FBovespa exchange.
