Three bids were submitted for the exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons in the Ionian Sea and the southern Cretan Sea, as part of a tender, which, according to the ministry of Reconstruction of Production, Environment and Energy (YPAPEN), “in the current difficult conditions in the oil market, this can be assessed as a positive step forward in the efforts of the country to exploit its underwater wealth”.

The names of the companies, as well as the areas (plots) for which they are interested in, will be announced after the completion of the tenders.
