MX Oil, together with its partner Geo Estratos, is pleased to announce the joint venture has been successful in its bid for Land Contract Areas in the third phase of the Bid Round 1 Licensing for onshore conventional concessions in the re-opening Mexican energy sector.
Having submitted bids yesterday, the JV has won four concessions in Veracruz, namely Tecolutla, Ponton, La Laja and Paso de Oro.
MX Oil's Chief Executive Officer Stefan Olivier said, 'We are delighted with this outcome after two years of hard work in Mexico with our partner Geo Estratos. We undertook significant work in our assessment of these blocks and we are thrilled to have been successful in acquiring all our primary targets in an area that our team understands very well. These blocks, given their proximity to each other, provide logistical synergies and cost savings that further enhance the project economics of any single block.
