Our portfolio of projects in North and West Africa are managed by our International Exploration and New Ventures teams from our headquarters in Aberdeen, UK. Our interests are in Mauritania, Guinea and Cameroon.


In Mauritania, the Fregate-1 well, part of the multi-well programme with Tullow, was spudded in August 2013 with multiple stratigraphic level targets. The drilling was completed in February 2014 and the results of this well continue to be evaluated.


In June 2012, the Group (through it subsidary Dana Petroleum Cameroon Limited) was awarded a PSC for the Bakassi West block in Cameroon. Dana is the operator (55%), working in partnership with Madison Cameroon Oli and Gas Limited (35%) and SoftRock Oli and Gas Limited (10%). In January 2014 Dana commenced full 2D seismic operations in Bakassi West.
