UAE-based Dana Gas said on Monday that an explosive device was dropped and detonated within its Khor Mor Block in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq last week.

In a bourse filing on Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX), the energy firm said the detonations on Friday morning caused no injuries to people or damage to facilities.

Production operations continue at the Khor Mor Gas plant as normal without interruption, it added.

In June last year a series of rocket attacks targeted the energy firm's facilities in Sulaymaniyah in northern Iraq. No group had claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Dana Gas and Crescent Petroleum are joint operators for the Khor Mor and Chemchemal gas fields on behalf of the Pearl Petroleum consortium.
