In his most recent Op-ed, Carlos Leal, President of the Colombian Association of Petroleum Engineers (Acipet), called on the government to include industry Associations in the discussion around fracking pilot projects (PPIIs).
The Colombian Petroleum Association (ACP) spoke about the government’s achievements and challenges when it comes to working with the industry to bring the national economy “back to life.”
Members of the National Hydrocarbons Agency (ANH) took the virtual stage of this year’s Oil & Gas Summit to talk about the challenges and opportunities of the Colombian industry, amid the ‘new normal.’
The Colombian Association of Petroleum Engineers (Acipet) explained why it does not agree with the decision of the State Council, to declare null the regulations that establish the criteria and procedures for the development of unconventional resources, including fracking.
We have just finished the Third Oil and Gas Summit (III Cumbre de Petroleo y Gas) and as always it was packed with interesting sessions. While the ANH’s extended workshop on Friday will have the most impact in the short- and medium-term, my candidate for the most important long-term discussion was Thursday’s “Role of the hydrocarbons sector in the framework of the global recovery” (El rol del sector de hidrocarburos en el marco de la recuperación mundial), mostly because it had very little to do with the title.
