Bonheur and Ganger Rolf intend to continue their
strong engagement within floating production and
intend to maintain a majority owning interest in
Fred.Olsen Production. Further expansion is
envisaged financed by a combination of increased
equity and debt.

within floating production with extensive
experience and strong market position in a
growing market. Fred. Olsen Production owns and
operates 5 FPSO/FSO units. The fleet will be
increased with one additional unit later in 2007
by the conversion of the suezmax tanker Knock
Allan into an FPSO for a contract with Canadian
Natural Resources for operations in Gabon.

Mårten Lunde will leave his present position as
CFO in Fred. Olsen & Co and be appointed
President and CEO in Fred.Olsen Production, with
Paal Hylin as Executive Vice President and COO.
