Ratio Energy Limited.

Negotiations were nearly completed when the October 2013 Anadarko/Venezuelan incident occurred. It took until the 1st Quarter of 2015 before negotiations resumed. On April 28, 2015, the production sharing agreement was signed by both the then Government of Guyana and Ratio’s principals. The concession was then renamed the ‘Kaieteur’ Block, and totals approximately 13,535 sq. kms.

Contracts entered into with ExxonMobil and its joint venture partners, and CGX Energy are also available on the Ministry’s website.
