LONDON (Dow Jones Newswires), June 25, 2010

Major oil producers Total, Eni and Heritage Oil have held meetings with the Afghanistan Mining Ministry to express interest and get information about upcoming oil tenders in Afghanistan, the country's mining minister said Friday.

Afghanistan will tender the Kashqari oil block with an estimated 30 million barrels of oil in August or September, Wahidullah Shahrani said.

The ministry will then tender oil blocks in the Afghan-Tajik basin in early 2011, he said.

The basin is estimated to contain about 1.6 billion barrels of oil.
