PERUPETRO SA successfully concluded the development of five face-to-face citizen participation events for Lot 8 (Loreto), in the districts of Trompeteros, Nauta and the native community of San Cristóbal, with the active participation of communities, representatives of federations, organizations indigenous and population.

The five citizen participation workshops were held on September 14, 15 and 20; with the participation of approximately 400 attendees from communities belonging to the Achuar, Urarina and Kukama ethnic groups

It was also attended by district, provincial and regional government authorities of Loreto and representatives of state entities.

It should be specified that citizen participation in hydrocarbon activities is the responsibility of PERUPETRO, while Prior Consultation corresponds to the Ministry of Energy and Mines, in accordance with current regulations.

During the workshops, PERUPETRO indicated that the future new contract for Block 8 will incorporate various environmental and social improvements. He mentioned, for example, that the agreements and social commitments assumed by the
companies with the population, will be of contractual compliance and supervised by PERUPETRO SA, an aspect that did not exist in the contracts signed 30 years ago.

Another important aspect is that a Development Fund will be created for the benefit of the populations in the area of influence of Lot 8.

PERUPETRO expressed the need to promote greater investments to increase the production of hydrocarbons, which will translate into more resources (canon and on-canon) for the region, greater employment and greater workforce.

In the January-July period of this year, the canon for the production of hydrocarbons in Loreto amounted to 139 million soles and in the period 2010-2021 the canon amounted to 2,118 million soles.
