Aberdeen-based Dana Petroleum has announced the appointment of a new Managing Director for its Norwegian activities.
Reidar Hustoft took up his new position on 1 February replacing John M Dahlen, who is retiring from the company. John was a co-founder of Ener Petroleum which was acquired by Dana in 2007.
Reidar previously ran Dana’s business in the Netherlands and is originally from Norway. He is moving back to his native country after spending over 30 years working in the oil and gas industry in the North Sea. Prior to joining Dana he worked with Petro-Canada, Procon Drilling Services, DNO Heather and Unocal International.
Reidar said: “Significant unexplored areas remain offshore Norway, and I am delighted to be moving back to Norway at such an interesting time for our Norwegian offshore activities. We have plans to drill a number of exploration wells over the next 2 – 3 years.”
