Lot 192: three decades of production
On February 28, 2023, Petroperú and Perupetro signed the License Agreement for the Exploitation of Lot 192, with an extension of 30 years. This lot, located between the province of Datem del Marañón and the province of Loreto (in the Loreto region), has an area of 512’347,241 hectares and is the most productive in the country, with estimated reserves of 127 million barrels of oil and a production field of 12 thousand barrels per day.
It is strategically located to generate synergies with other lots in the jungle and even with lots in the southeast of Ecuador. The hydrocarbon exploitation activity in Lot 192 will generate sustainability and development in the region, as it will provide employment for more than 3,000 direct and indirect jobs.
After being paralyzed since February 2020, Petroperú has begun the reactivation of Lot 192, with the plan of resuming production activities in the first quarter of 2024.
Production from Lot 192 will go to the New Talara Refinery. With this, it seeks to cover the demand for crude oil to load the refining process. In addition, it will ensure the economic operation of the Northern Branch of the Peruvian Pipeline.
