In accordance with the approval of the Extraordinary Session of the governing body of the National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH), as part of these works, the oil company expects to drill four wells.

The plans for the contracts CNH-R02-L04-AP-CM-G01 / 2018, CNH-R02-L04-AP-CM-G05 / 2018 and CNH-R02-L04-AP-CS-G10 / 2018 seek to evaluate the potential oil industry, corroborate the functioning of the systems and mature the potential zones identified.

"In case of carrying out the activities that are embodied in these plans, the accumulated investment reaches about 330.8 million dollars, obviously considering the drilling of the four points that are committed in the blocks," said the official of the regulatory body.
