Abu Dhabi-listed Dana Gas aims to slash its head office workforce by 40 per cent and cut general and administrative costs by half between 2015 and early 2016, its chief executive said on Tuesday.

The energy company will continue to invest in Egypt and sees its production in the country increasing, Patrick Allman-Ward told reporters on the sidelines of a conference in Abu Dhabi.
