Ecopetrol and Anadarko in major Colombia gas find

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Colombian state oil company Ecopetrol said on Wednesday it has discovered gas at an exploratory well it shares with U.S.-based Anadarko Petroleum in deep waters in the Caribbean Sea, creating the possibility of developing a production cluster.

President Juan Manuel Santos said it was the biggest gas find in Colombia in 28 years and will allow the nation to be energy self-sufficient for the coming decades.
