Graphic News

April 4, 2018 -- América Latina realizará el mayor número de rondas de licitación de su historia, abriendo cerca de 1.100 bloques de petróleo y gas a la inversión exterior en 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.
