ANCAP as an Operator

The Exploration and Production Department (E&P) performs the activities of hydrocarbon exploration by itself or through contracts with third parties, as it is stablished in the Mining Code (15.242 Law). For this, exploration areas are requested to the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining (MIEM) in which will be held the different activities in a determined period of time (geological mapping, surface sampling, geophysical data acquisition, stratigraphic wells, among others). Currently, ANCAP operates in 5 areas located in the Norte Basin (Pepe Núñez, Cañada de los Burros, Cuchilla del Queguay, Clara and Villa Constitución).
