Faroe Petroleum bosses benefited from big increases to their pay deals in 2016.
The Aberdeen-based oil and as explorer’s latest annual report shows chief executive Graham Stewart received a package worth £798,000 up from £646,000 the year before.
Chief operating officer Helge Hammer earned £653,000 last year, up from £565,000 previously.
And chief financial officer Jonathan Cooper was paid £541,00 in 2016, up from £424,000 last time.
Faroe, which is focused principally on exploration, appraisal and production opportunities in Norway and the UK, made pre-tax losses of £61.5million last year, though this was a big improvement on losses of £122.3million the year before.
Last December, it emerged Israeli company Delek Group had taken a 13.18% stake in Faroe from Dana Petroleum in a £42.77million deal to boost its North Sea presence.
