PERUPETRO whitepaper: 31 areas

PERUPETRO has selected 31 promotional areas in different sedimentary basins with important prospects. These, located in the Marañon, Ucayali, Madre de Dios, Salaverry and Tumbes Basins, can be granted to interested companies as License Contracts or as Technical Evaluation Agreements.  

Nonetheless, we continue with the “open acreage” policy whereby interested companies can propose other available areas of interest.  

At the same time, PERUPETRO has been aligning efforts with the different sectors involved in the development of the industry, to reactivate production and generate conditions for the development of important projects underway, mainly in the Peruvian offshore, where expectations are promising.

A deep dive into hydrogen for the energy transition

Hydrogen is the rising star of the transition to net zero, grabbing the attention of oil majors, policymakers, investors and multiple industrial sectors after decades of relative obscurity as an essential but little-discussed industrial gas.

Its potential to decarbonise swathes of the global economy—from refining and chemicals to steel making, transport and domestic heating—is vast.

The creation of a hydrogen economy is hugely challenging and expensive, and not necessarily achievable at scale by 2050. Forecasts of hydrogen’s share of the global energy mix by mid-century range from as little as 2-3pc to about 20pc, highlighting the level of uncertainty at this early stage of the sector’s development.

Find out what the US, the European Union and Asian nations such as China and India are doing for hydrogen but also how differing concerns around energy security mean each country takes diverging paths to the transition.

Why failing to extend cybersecurity to the production line is a serious threat to your business
Is your organisation prepared to respond to operational technology (OT) cyberattacks? Effective cybersecurity is a holistic effort that needs to address IT and OT to protect business assets and operations. However, too many organisations in the chemical industry are taking an unbalanced approach, risking the future of their business and the safety of their workers and customers. In 2022 defence of OT is equally important as IT infrastructure and line-of business applications. OT cybersecurity is the logical evolution of digital transformation strategy in the chemical industry.
