DNO reports payment for Tawke deliveries


DNO ASA, the Norwegian oil and gas operator, has reported receipt of $47.23 million from the Kurdistan Regional Government as payment for February 2018 crude oil deliveries to the export market from the Tawke license.

 The funds will be shared by DNO and partner Genel Energy plc pro-rata to the companies' interests in the license.

Separately, a payment of $4.51 million from the Kurdistan Regional Government has been received net to DNO, representing three percent of gross Tawke license revenues during February, as provided for under last August's receivables settlement agreement.

 DNO operates and has a 75 per cent interest in the Tawke license, which contains the Tawke and Peshkabir fields.

Gross production from the Tawke license stood at 111,618 barrels of oil per day (bopd) during February, of which only 102,999 bopd was exported due to a planned pipeline outage; the balance was placed into interim storage at Fish Khabur and exported the following month.
