The El Trébol deposit, with more than 70 years of history, will start the first pilot for the development of tertiary, a milestone that will open a new opportunity for the future of said field. This project foresees for 2022 the installation of a modular polymer injection plant and a water treatment plant.
Meanwhile, in Restinga Ali, a field that is more than 90 years old, a well will be drilled that will make it possible to evaluate the potential of the area with the aim of increasing production in a field that was recovered by the company in 2013.
