Net production in 2015 amounted to 4.4 Mbbl of liquids and 9.9 bscf of gas (16,949 boepd), with net reserves estimated at 27.1 Mboe.
We are working with the following partners: Ecopetrol, Pacific Rubiales, Amerisur, Total, Hocol, Exxon Mobil, Statoil, and Petrobras.
On May 8th, 2015, new projects were added to our assets portfolio. These include a share in the company Equion, a joint venture in which Repsol has a 49% stake, and Ecopetrol 51%. We also have a 45% non-operated stake in block CPO-9, where, in 2014, the discovery of hydrocarbons in the Nueva Esperanza-1 well was announced and where the Akacias field is in the development phase. 


We develop projects with the communities that live in the vicinity of our operations to improve their quality of life.

For these projects to be as successful as possible, we coordinate our efforts with the authorities, and also bear in mind the needs of the different communities, requesting that local leaders participate so that the investment programs meet the needs raised by the communities. 

We have been working with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) since 2014 on projects focusing on vulnerable people, ethnic minorities, and those in extreme poverty. Between 2014 and 2015 we have been collaborating with 18 Wayuu communities in Guajira, the northernmost point, and also with the national Government regarding access to water and purification. In 2016 we have been working in two of the towns built by the national government for those who have been displaced due to violence and reinserted, and people affected by natural disasters. We have developed productive programs that adapt to the real-life circumstances of the territory and improve relations between these communities.
