Rocksource becomes Pure E&P
Change of management, head office and company name
In May 2015, EPSI AS, a portfolio company of the fund HitecVision VII, became the sole owner of Rocksource ASA and subsequently initiated a delisting of the company.
Following the delisting effective June 2015, the Board of Directors of Rocksource announced the appointment of Roar Tessem as new CEO. The management team has been further strengthened with the appointment of Lars A. Husby as new CFO, Per-Gustav Granholm as SVP Subsurface and Jørn Rokk as SVP Strategy and Commercial. The new management team has extensive experience within the E&P industry, most recently from Tullow Oil. The head office of the company has with effect from July 2015 been moved from Bergen to Oslo. The technical team will be split between the two office locations.
Further, please be advised that Rocksource Exploration Norway AS has changed name to Pure E&P Norway AS. At the same time, the holding company Rocksource AS has changed name to Pure E&P AS. The Company’s strategy remains focused on the NCS, building a high quality exploration portfolio and drill queue.
