The Government had approved a proposal to authorize ONGC Videsh, the overseas investment arm of ONGC, to form of a joint venture company with CVP / Petroleos De Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA), Venezuela, for development of San Cristobal field located in Orinoco oil belt, directly or through OVL's existing or new wholly-owned subsidiary. With the project, OVL will get an opportunity to obtain an equity ownership of 40 percent in one of the largest oil producing countries in partnership with the national oil company of Venezuela.
