Aberdeen-based Dana Petroleum appointed a new managing director for its Norwegian activities.

Reidar Hustoft joined Dana on 1 February 2013 replacing John M Dahlen, who retired from the company. Dahlen co-founded Ener Petroleum, which was acquired by Dana in 2007.

Hustoft 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.

"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," Hustoft said of his new position. "We have plans to drill a number of exploration wells over the next two to three years.”
