PetroTal increases capital and will restart operations after agreement with Petroperu
PetroTal and Petroperu reached an agreement to restructure the liabilities generated by the fall in the price of crude oil and coordinate the reopening of the North Peruvian Pipeline to transport the production of lot 95.
The agreement allows PetroTal’s contingent debt to be rescheduled to three years and makes it possible to resume production activities at the Bretaña oil field, located in Block 95, whose oil is sent to the Norperuano Pipeline and the Iquitos refinery, both owned by Petroperú.
The decision will contribute to the reactivation of the economy of the Loreto Region, which will not only benefit from increased employment and production, but will also receive the flow of oil royalties.
