The blocks cover a combined 2,000 sq km in 90-1,000 m of water 60-100 km off Sulina. The right to implement these projects was obtained by the consortium as a result of bidding held in the summer of 2010. A 3D seismic study is required to assess the geological structure of the blocks.

The companies bid on the blocks in mid-2010. Interests are Lukoil Overseas 80% and Vanco 20%. Lukoil Overseas will open an office in Romania to operate the project.
