Perenco began operations in Colombia in 1993 after acquiring assets in the Llanos Basin.
Operations in Colombia have focused on developing these isolated fields, spread over 9 000 km², by integrating them into a single operation. Perenco has succeeded in making these remote sites economical by rationalizing operational costs, and by developing social programs over more than 90 municipalities where 5 750 families have directly benefited from health, education and infrastructure projects during 2012.
The Company's ongoing drilling campaign has already involved a total of 49 development wells and 11 exploratory wells. One exploration well and a 220 Km² seismic program on Corocora and Llanos45 are being prepared for 2013.
In 2012, the drilling campaign included two wells on Morichal, two new wells on Tocaria, LGN-6 and Attic Oils in Trinidad. In total these wells have added close to 4 000 bopd through production optimization.
In 2012, Perenco received ANH's certification to operate and bid for any contract in the 2012 Round, and won the SIN-3 exploration and production contract, located in Sinu basin.
