Government predicts investment worth US$3.8 billion in the energy Round 3.1

The Energy Round 3.1 will generate investment surpassing US$3.8 billion for as long as contracts last, estimated the Secretary of Energy, Pedro Joaquin Coldwell. This would represent 25% of the production estimated by the International Agency of Energy, resulting from new discoveries of shallow waters by 2026, thus generating nearly 39,000 direct and indirect jobs. Coldwell said that the invitation to tender includes 35 blocks distributed over three marine basins in the Gulf of Mexico, with total resources of 1.988 billion barrels of crude oil, reaching a 26,265 square kilometers surface, with depths between 200 and 500 meters.
