Our offshore projects
In 2019 Equinor added eight exploration blocks offshore Argentina to the company’s portfolio.
We were granted permits for five blocks as operator and participated in winning bids for one block to be operated by YPF, and one block to be operated by Total, in the Offshore Licensing Round in April 2019.
In August the same year we farmed into the CAN_100 block with YPF in the North and took over operatorship.
Equinor’s eight blocks are spread across basins. We are operator for three blocks in the Northern Argentina Basin in the North and three across the Austral and Western Malvinas basins in the South.
