In an interview with El Espectador, MinMinas Federico Renjifo spoke about oil and environmental licenses, among other topics. Regarding oil production, Renjifo said: “This year we reached 1.014M barrels. This month we reached 1.027M barrels and we can reach 1.033M barrels. It has been a good indicator and the challenge is to maintain that production. We have increased reserves. Colombia requires a reserves increase.” He added that it is necessary to increase exploration, since there has not been a great discovery and current reserves are extracted from small wells.
