DNO suspends output from two Yemen blocks

DNO Yemen AS has suspended production totaling 3,400 b/d of oil gross from two blocks in Yemen after blockades by local groups restricted movement of equipment, supplies, and contractors.

The subsidiary of DNO ASA, Oslo, issued force majeure notices to the Ministry of Oil and Minerals for Block 32 Howarime and Block 43 South Howarime.

It invoked force majeure for Block 47 South Hood last September.

DNO said labor unions on June 22 started unilateral actions leading to work stoppages on Blocks 32 and 43.

DNO operates the blocks. It holds interests of 38.95% in Block 32, 56.67% in Block 43, and 40% in Block 47.
