Additionally, all interested parties can learn about all hydrocarbon bidding processes, either bidding processes to select partners for the State’s productive company (Farmouts), or the award of Hydrocarbon Exploration and/or Extraction Contracts.

As a citizen participation mechanism, an email address has been made available in order to receive comments or questions from the general public.
