I don't know if anyone has read the KRG/GEP PSC and wondered if a part sale is permitted ....

I suspect it may be permitted judging by the fact that SNM not aware of what is going on... but I would have thought that the KRG would at least have to counter-agree... also we know the KRG are keen to get big names involved and so they would probably want the block sold as much as possible... to ramp up production etc.
