Denmark will lose an oil and gas company while Switzerland will now be able to add oil and gas to its skill set. At least in the commercial sense.
Dong's divestment Wednesday includes daily production of 100,000 barrels of oil and gas. 70 percent of the production comes from Norwegian fields, where Dong is owner or co-owner. 15 percents come from Danish fields and 15 percent from newer fields in the potentially promising, but also difficult, British area West of Shetland.
