HAVANA， Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- International oil companies believe there is still great potential to make new oil discoveries in Cuba since most of the island remains unexplored.
At a three-day meeting that started Wednesday， more than 200 experts from 15 oil companies shared their experiences in boosting the Cuban oil and gas industry.
The "Cuba Oil and Gas Summit 2017，" hosted by Cuba's state-owned oil company CUPET， was aimed at attracting foreign investment.

"Our company believes Cuba has a rich natural endowment of oil and gas， particularly in the onshore sector where there are wells， existing production and reserves，" Peter Strickland， managing director of Australia's Melbana Energy， told Xinhua.
This company has signed a production-sharing contract in Cuba's Block 9， about 140 km east of Havana.
The zone， which CUPET calls the North Belt， has been divided into 45 separate blocks to intensify shallow water and onshore exploration.
Strickland said Melbana Energy's block is at.
