UAE’s Dana Gas Q2 Net Profit Jumps 70% On Higher Production

The Sharjah-based energy firm said its average production volume was up 17 per cent to 72,200 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

Dana Gas, the United Arab Emirates energy firm, said on Wednesday that its second-quarter net profit jumped 70 per cent as production across the group rose.

Dana made a net profit of Dhs169 million ($46 million), the company said in a bourse filing. This compares with Dhs100 million in the year-earlier period.

Revenues for the second quarter were Dhs685 million, up from Dhs528 million.

Dana said its average overall production volume was up 17 per cent to 72,200 barrels of oil equivalent per day in the second quarter.

The Sharjah-based energy firm has had problems recovering payment from exploration and production assets in Egypt and Iraq’s region of Kurdistan because of political turmoil in those countries.

Dana reiterated that it had not received any significant payment from Kurdistan since July 2013 and was taking steps to ensure that payments resumed as soon as possible.
