IPR Wastani Petroleum has submitted a request for arbitration, disputing Dana Gas' right to terminate the sale and purchase and agreement, Dana Gas said.

IPR Energy Group could not immediately be reached for comment.

Dana Gas, listed in the United Arab Emirates, said it was "very confident" of its legal position and right to cancel the sale and purchase agreement and would defend the proceedings.
