The area covers 309,309ha in regions Huánuco, Ucayali and Pasco.

The company has budgeted US$54mn to acquire 1,232km 2D seismic. The other component envisions construction of three platforms, each capable of drilling up to four exploratory/confirmation wells.

The estimated cost of one well/location is US$50mn and US$185mn for four wells/location.

The junior, which is controlled by Gran Tierra Energy, filed in October a semi-detailed EIS to carry out a similar campaign on block 107.
