On this occasion, offers will only be considered from entities fulfilling the following criteria:
- Have carried out offshore 2D, 3D, or 4D seismic surveys in at least three countries in the last five years
- And/or that have launched at least 5,000 km (total) of 2D seismic lines in the last seven years
- Or at least 500 sq km (193 sq mi) of 3D or 4D seismic surveys in the last seven years.
Terms for bidding can be found in the offices of the Ministry of Energy and Mines or on its website.
