The production from Yemen increased in September as a result of a new production well (Tasour 22ST) which was brought on stream at an initial gross rate of 6,400 bopd. This rate was further increased to > 8,000 bopd (gross).
The Glitne Field had a planned shut down for maintenance during September which decreased DNO's production by 285 bopd from August. The field is now back on line at approximately 10,000 bopd (gross), which is 1,000 bopd net to DNO.
