Shell Signs Offshore E&P Contracts With Colombia’s Government
Reuters Mon, 03/11/2019
Colombia's government on March 11 said it signed two exploration and production contracts with Royal Dutch Shell Plc in offshore areas of the Caribbean Sea that will require the company to make initial investments of $100 million.
Colombia recently modified contractual terms for offshore exploration and launched a Permanent Area Allocation Process so companies can apply to explore in areas of interest, offering 20 blocks as part of a strategy to boost the oil sector.
"The signing of these contracts revalidates the confidence of oil investors in exploration of our offshore resources in the Caribbean," National Hydrocarbons Agency (ANH) President Luis Miguel Morelli said in a statement.
The investment could surpass $650 million if exploration continues, he said.
Shell will explore blocks COL 3 and GUA OFF 3, which cover about 880,000 hectares.
Its investment adds to almost $400 million recently announced by Brazil's Petrobras in Colombia's Tayrona block and state oil company Ecopetrol in block COL-5.
Colombia has proven reserves of 1.78 billion barrels of oil, equivalent to 5.7 years of consumption, according to the Ministry of Mines and Energy.
The government wants to boost its hydrocarbon reserves to guarantee its self-sufficiency.

Colombia to begin oil exploration offshore in the Caribbean
Wednesday, March 6th 2019
Colombia and its state-run oil company, Ecopetrol, announced they have signed an offshore exploration and production deal for a nearly 400,000-hectare (988,000-acre) bloc in the Caribbean, the country's first new oil and gas contract in more than four years.
The country recently modified its bidding system for offshore oil and gas exploration contracts and re-launched bidding for more than 20 possible production areas.
The government, which last held an auction in 2014, repeatedly postponed bidding that had been set to take place last year because of company requests to change contract specifications.
The company will mount at least two exploratory wells, the statement said, and is optimistic the bloc will yield gas reserves in the medium term. Ecopetrol said in its own statement it was planning to seek a partner for exploration and production in the bloc. Ecopetrol currently operates in five offshore blocks.
Ecopetrol last week reported a net profit for 2018 of 11.55 trillion pesos, about US$ 3.7 billion, a five-year high and a 74.6% increase over the prior year.

Colombia’s Push To Triple Proven Oil & Gas Reserves
By Oxford Business Group - Jul 17, 2019
While the debate over fracking is not new, a recent report, issued by a 13-person panel of experts across the industry and related academia, has given the green light to begin evaluating prospects. Developed as a guideline for whether or not the country should engage in fracking activities, the document recommends the implementation of one or more integral research pilot projects (proyectos pilotos de investigación integral, PPIIs). These should generate knowledge and scientific evidence that will help make informed decisions on the commercial production of hydrocarbons. Implementation of PPIIs will respond to a number of requisites addressing matters concerning transparency, management guidelines, prior consultation with communities, strengthening institutional capacity and regulatory oversight, as well as ensuring environmental protection and water conservation.
While the law covers the exploration phase of non-conventional sources, no regulation yet exists with regards to production stages. In addition, a number of advocacy organisations have highlighted the contradictory nature of the report, namely that despite recognising the numerous risks associated with these activities, it still gave them the go-ahead.
María Fernanda Suárez, minister of mining and energy, told international media that Colombia could increase its oil and gas reserves through the use of fracking from 5.7 years for crude and 11 years for gas, to 15 and 30 years, respectively. She stated that ExxonMobil, Conoco Phillips, Parex and Ecopetrol are among those interested in initiating fracking operations. A number of basins offer strong prospects for potential fracking, including Valle Medio del Magdalena, Valle Superior del Magdalena, Caguán-Putumayo, Catatumbo, Cordillera Oriental, Cesar-Ranchería, La Guajira and Llanos Orientales. Once it receives environmental approval from the National Authority for Enviromental Licences, the first pilot project will be developed by Ecopetrol in Valle Medio del Magdalena. It is expected to set the stage for the future application of this technology. Ecopetrol announced that it will invest $500m in the exploration of non-conventional deposits between 2019 and 2021, and establish a Directorate of Non-conventional Hydrocarbons within its corporate structure to direct its intentions in the field.
While the new government sees the development of its hydrocarbons potential as paramount to the country’s development and energy self-sufficiency, opposition from local communities and environmentalists is ongoing. A lack of trust in the government, local communities’ perception of insufficient norms and regulations, and oversight from local and regional environmental agencies act as roadblocks to the development of extractive industries. While recent favourable decisions by the constitutional courts provide an additional impetus for operators seeking to develop activities in the sector (see overview), the country’s history in dealing with regional authorities remains a risk for those seeking to enter the sector.

Ecopetrol en Colombie va construire un parc solaire PV de 50 MW.

Colombian oil company to power fossil fuel extraction with 50 MW of solar
The PV capacity being developed by EcoPetrol will power Colombian pumping stations at San Fernando and Apiay as well as the oil fields of Castilla, Chichimene and Apiay, in the Eastern Plains of the country.
FEBRUARY 20, 2020
Colombian state-owned oil company Ecopetrol has announced plans for a 50 MW solar park which will be owned by its Cenit hydrocarbon transportation and logistics subsidiary.
The fossil fuel company said the facility will be in the Colombian municipality of Castilla La Nueva, in the department of Meta, and will generate clean electricity for the San Fernando and Apiay pumping stations as well as oil fields in Castilla, Chichimene and Apiay, in the Eastern Plains.
Construction of the 46ha solar plant, which will feature more than 100,000 panels, will begin in the middle of the year with commercial operation slated for December. At that point, the facility will be the largest self-consumption power plant developed in the country, more than twice the size of the 20.4 MW Solar Castilla Park finalized by Ecopetrol in October.
The oil business, formerly known as Empresa Colombiana de Petróleos, announced plans to invest in solar energy in August 2018.
