Dana Petroleum announces first oil production from Cormorant East Field in Northern North Sea

Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013

First oil has been brought on line from Cormorant East, a newly discovered oil field, in which Dana Petroleum has a 20 per cent stake.

The initial production rate is approximately 5,500 barrels of oil per day (net Dana approximately 1,100 barrels of oil per day).

A Field Development Plan (FDP) for the Cormorant East Field, part of the Contender Block, was approved by DECC last year.

First oil follows Dana and other partners successfully drilling well 211/21-N94 (the “Contender Well”) in October 2012 and penetrating a thick oil section in the Tarbert Formation of the Jurassic Brent Group.

Production will be processed at the North Cormorant platform operated by TAQA Bratani Limited (“TAQA”) before being exported to the Sullom Voe terminal for sale.

UK Managing Director Paul Griffin said: “We continue to invest in the North Sea by searching out new exploration and production opportunities. Cormorant East is a welcome addition to our portfolio of non-operated assets.
