Dana Gas said it has received a total of $83 million in collections in the last few weeks.
The company received $47 million against its receivables in Egypt, $36 million of which is in local Egyptian Pounds earmarked to settle overdue payables to service providers to its Egyptian operations. The balance of US$11 million is ring-fenced towards funding for the previously announced Gas Production Enhancement Agreement in Egypt wherein it was agreed that the money received would be reinvested into this project in Egypt going forward.
In relation to its Kurdistan operations, Dana Gas has received a cash advance amounting to $18 million as part of its 40% share in the Pearl Petroleum Joint Venture in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
