The project includes two blocks, which are located 42 kilometres offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Two oilfields – Ichalkil and Pokoch – are located within the blocks. The recoverable hydrocarbon reserves of the fields amount to 564 million barrels of oil equivalent, more than 80% of which is crude oil.

Production at the fields started in the fourth quarter of 2021, while current average daily oil production has exceeded 25,000 barrels.

The project is being developed in three phases, with a peak daily production rate estimated to be more than 115,000 barrels of oil equivalent. The partner in the project is PetroBal, the oil and gas subsidiary of Mexican conglomerate GrupoBAL, with the remaining 50% interest.
