There are three types of licences: exploration, significant discovery and production. All bids for exploration licences are evaluated on the basis of total work expenditures or, in other words, the amount of money proposed for exploration on the land parcel during period one of the term. Work expenditure bids are refundable based on the amount of money a company spends on exploration.
