Petroleum reservations in Cuba should increase after the completion of an evaluation of potential oil-bearing sites discovered over the last few months, the AIN news agency reported.

The best results have been obtained in the heavy crude oil strip to the north of the Matanzas and Havana provinces. Close to the coast, several sites currently exist that contribute 98 percent of the national production.

The most modern techniques are being used in seismic, geologic and drilling work, with equipment capable of boring wells of up to seven thousand meters deep.

Deep water exploration continues with the participation of nine international oil companies, with encouraging results having been obtained in designated blocks off the Cuban coast in the Gulf of Mexico.
