Crown Prince’s Dragon Oil appointment
In mid-January, Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc) made changes to the board of its upstream subsidiary Dragon Oil, with Dubai Crown Prince and Dubai Executive Council chairman Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al-Maktoum appointed chairman. This follows the early January appointment of Enoc group chief executive Saif Al-Falasi as chief executive of Dragon Oil, replacing Dr Abdul Jaleel Al-Khalifa who had held the position since 2008. Dragon Oil was acquired by Enoc in 2015. Its main asset is the Cheleken offshore field in Turkmenistan; it also has assets in Iraq, Algeria, Tunisia, Afghanistan and Egypt.
