UAE energy firm Dana Gas said on Tuesday an international arbitration tribunal had awarded it $607.5 million in a gas supply dispute with National Iranian Oil Co. The dispute concerns a 25 year gas sales and purchase contract between Dana Gas affiliate Crescent Petroleum and NIOC. Dana Gas says the gas was never delivered. The damages awarded are for the first eight and a half years of the 25 year agreement that had been due to start in 2005. A final hearing on a “much larger claim” for the remaining 16.5 years has been set for October next year in Paris with a decision on that award due in 2023, Dana Gas said in a statement.
