OFFICIAL VOICE OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF CUBA CENTRAL COMMITTEE

SANTA CRUZ DEL NORTE, Maya­be­que.­—­ Cuba’s Western Oil Drilling and Extraction Enterprise reached 1 million tons of crude oil thus far this year, a result of investments undertaken and the use of new technology.
The goal is now to reach the remaining 30,000 ton target by the end of December, as outlined in the company’s technical economic plan.
Meeting this objective will see the company celebrate 16 consecutive years producing over 1 million metric tons of crude oil.
To achieve this, repairs to storage and treatment tanks are currently underway, while efforts to improve drilling in order to obtain greater extraction volumes and better exploit active wells, are also taking place.
The entity is responsible for 60% of heavy crude oil wells located in the country’s northern region.
