April 4, 2018 -- Latin America will host the most licensing rounds in its history, opening about 1,100 oil and gas blocks for foreign investment in 2018.

Wood Mackenzie, an energy consultancy, expects intense exploration activity in deepwater basins around Brazil, Argentina and Mexico.

“Sizeable reserves, project optimisation and good productivity have been driving deepwater costs down,” said Horacio Cuenca, research director for Latin America at Wood Mackenzie.

“2018 will certainly be a transformative year for the region, both economically and politically,” Cuenca said.

Mexico started the year attracting $93 billion in investment pledges and followed with another round securing over $8 billion. In March, Brazil added $2.4 billion to about $30 billion from an October bidding round.

Colombia, Uruguay, Paraguay and Argentina will follow with auctions through the year, with keen interest expected from the majors and Asian national oil companies.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
