ConocoPhillips in $13 million Colombia shale oil deal
Canacol Energy, a Calgary, Canada, firm that operates in Colombia, said it will explore for shale oil with ConocoPhillips in Colombia's Middle Magdalena basin.

Canacol said the agreement between the two companies calls for exploration and potential development of the Santa Isabel contract.
