Dana Petroleum’s Western Isles project is all about the ‘long game’


Dana Petroleum has said it is playing “the long game” on its flagship Western Isles project after confirming cost overruns had reached $400million. First oil on the project has been pushed back until 2017 after it emerged the project price tag has reached $2billion. A spokesman for the firm stressed the majority of the costs could be attributed to ensuring safety standards are met in the development of the project’s FPSO.
