Brazil: ANP extends 10 HRT-TNK Solimoes basin blocks

Brazil’s ANP has extended for 4 years the second exploration period for 10 of the 21 blocks held by HRT Participacoes em Petroleo SA, Rio de Janeiro, in the southern and eastern Solimoes basin of Brazil.

The extension applies to the SOL-T-151, 174, 196, 197, 192, 214, 215, 216, 217, and 218 blocks.

HRT, which is exploring the blocks with partner TNK-Brasil, said the extension “is aligned with our strategy to expand the exploratory campaign to the southern and eastern blocks, towards where we are acquiring seismic data, as well as preparing rigs to drill.”
