The Mining and Energy Ministry (MEM) will put out to tender six oil fields located in Peten, Quiche and Alta Verapaz in 2011.
The tender is scheduled for January 2011, said Alfredo Pokus, Deputy Minister of Mines and Hydrocarbons. Documentation will be made available over the course of the week to the General Secretary office, to be reviewed and approved.
The first tender will be for an area in the Pacific Ocean and will be announced at the end of November or early December.
Despite the Government having announced its interest in increasing oil production in order to ease the crisis caused by high oil prices, the plans to tender six new oil exploration areas, which had previously been prepared during the administration of Oscar Berger, were delayed for unknown reasons.
