PetroMagdalena halts Colombian output for road blocks
Thursday, April 26, 2012
PetroMagdalena Energy said it halted production at some wells in Colombia's Llanos basin due to road blocks in the area and suspended operations at a well in the Catatumbo basin where it faced a natural flow of water.
The oil and gas company, formerly known as Alange Energy Corp, expects about 3,700 barrels of oil per day to be shut in because of the blockade at the Cubiro block.
Those blocking roads are neither its employees nor contractors, said PetroMagdalena, which has evacuated all non-essential operational personnel from the block.
