Altamesa Energy Canada maintains interest in lot 192 as a strategic partner of Petroperú

Altamesa Energy Canada Inc., a company dedicated to the exploration and production of hydrocarbons, indicated that it maintains a firm commitment and interest in participating as a strategic partner of Petroperú in the Lot 192 project located in the Loreto region, Peru.

The company stated that it has submitted to Perupetro all the necessary documentation required by the regulations and corresponding guidelines. To date, Perupetro is evaluating this documentation, being in its final stage.

“Once the qualification is obtained from Perupetro, Altamesa expects to be able to sign the modification to the license contract of Lot 192 in the coming months. This modification would allow Altamesa to assume a direct role in the reactivation and development of the project,” the company said in a press release.

It is estimated that once the contractual modification is signed, Altamesa could begin activities aimed at recovering the conditions of the field before the end of the year, estimating to restart production in 2024 with the consequent generation of local jobs and canon for the Loreto region.

“Altamesa recognizes the strategic importance of Lot 192 for the country’s energy development and commits to contributing to the growth of the hydrocarbons sector in Peru since its intentions are long-term,” points out the company.

Altamesa was chosen as a strategic partner of Petroperú after winning the contest called for this purpose and signed with the company a joint investment contract on August 13, 2021, which regulates the relationship between both companies.
