US oil company sues Colombia for fracking ban

Wednesday, August 9, 2017


US oil company Hupecol Operating has sued Colombia for banning fracking near one of the country’s most unique ecosystems, the Caño Cristales river, according to local media.

The Houston-based company had acquired the rights to explore fracking possibilities in the south of the Meta province, but saw these rights revoked in 2016 after public uproar about possible oil operations near what is considered one of Colombia’s most beautiful rivers.
