The contract granting the right to search for and exploit hydrocarbons in “Granting Area 2” (to the west of Corfu) by the consortium of Hellenic Petroleum, Edison and Total companies is underway for its signing and ratification by the Greek Parliament. The Court of Auditors has concluded the Pre-contract Audit and has deemed that “there is no cause hindering the signing of the leasing draft contract that was submitted to the Court”.

The same process will be followed for area 10, in the Gulf of Kyparissia, for which Hellenic Petroleum company is the eligible applicant.
