The Middle-East region is one of DNO's current main focus areas. Since 1998 the company has been operating in The Republic of Yemen and is currently the Operator for two licenses - of which one producing field (Tasour) and a recent oil discovery (Nabrajah). In addition DNO is participating as a coventurer in another producing field (Sharyoof), and was recently awarded its 4th concession as Operator in Block 72.
DNO's extensive experience and successful track record from Yemen makes the company well positioned to expand its operations in the Middle-East, and the company is therefore pursuing new opportunities in the region.
The agreement with the Kurdistan Regional Government represents the first successful step in this process, and will strengthen the company's position in the Middle-East region.
DNO is very pleased with this new and encouraging opportunity and is looking forward to develop a long-term cooperation with Kurdistan Regional Government to exploit hydrocarbon resources in Northern Iraq.
