Block model stays, for now

Kathimerini English - - Focus - CHRYSSA LIAGGOU

The in­ner cabi­net yes­ter­day de­cided against in­tro­duc­ing any changes to the block con­ces­sion model for hy­dro­car­bons sur­vey­ing and uti­liza­tion, to the re­lief of in­vestors, but the de­ci­sion an­nounced by the of­fice of Deputy Prime Min­is­ter Yiannis Dra­gasakis leaves open the pos­si­bil­ity of re­view­ing the model in the fu­ture.

This con­firms in­for­ma­tion that the gov­ern­ment’s in­ten­tion is to mod­ify the con­ces­sion model to­ward the more ac­tive in­volve­ment of the state, even through par­tic­i­pa­tion in the con­sor­tiums that win the ten­ders to sur­vey the blocks.
