Dana Petroleum awarded new exploration licenses in North Sea

Back to press releases

Dana Petroleum has been awarded two new licenses in the UK North Sea, one of which is close to the Tolmount gas discovery in which Dana has a 50 per cent equity share with operator E.on.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change approved three blocks in two licences in the 27th Licensing Round. Dana has been awarded 42/28e, 42/29b and 48/10c all with E.on as operator.

The first two blocks are close to the licence in which the Tolmount gas discovery was made. 48/10c is close to existing infrastructure.

UK Managing Director Paul Griffin said: “These new additions to our portfolio offer us further opportunities for exploration. We hope to build on our recent exploration success in the UK North Sea where we have made two discoveries this year and five in the last three years.”
