Dana Petroleum’s chief financial officer has left the Aberdeen-based operator six years after joining.
David Crawford started working for South-Korean owned Dana in 2011 after leaving Dolphin Drilling, where he also held the CFO role.
His career included a 17 year spell at French oil major Total’s Granite City business.
A spokesman for Dana said: “We can confirm David Crawford is no longer the company’s chief financial officer and we will be making a new appointment in due course.”
Dana’s current deputy CFO is Jungwoo Seo, a qualified accountant who previous employers include the Korea National Oil Corporation.
Dana, which operates in the North Sea and Middle East, aims to produce first oil from its flagship Western Isles project later this year.
The £1.4billion development was “reset” at the end of 2014, with a longer timeline and bigger budget.
Dana exited its Norwegian business last year and recently sold its 13.18% stake in Faroe Petroleum to Israel’s Delek Group.
KNOC acquired Dana in late 2010 in a deal worth £1.67billion.
