National Agency for Mineral Resources (NAMR) approved the takeover by OMV Petrom of Repsol’s interest in four onshore exploration licenses. Following NAMR’s approval, OMV Petrom becomes sole titleholder and operator of the four exploration blocks V Băicoi, VI Târgoviște, XII Pitești and XIII Târgu Jiu.
