The National Hydrocarbons Agency is the administrator of the hydrocarbon resource of the nation, its actions are aimed at increasing the country's competitiveness by attracting domestic and foreign investors. The new regulatory framework offers greater flexibility and allows investors to access new E & P areas according to their needs. The areas are assigned in two ways: investors choice or ANH offers, both through modern, transparent and efficient procedures with appropriate management and monitoring mechanisms, that guarantee processes with high international standards. Additionally, the implementation of incentives and stable regulation has brought to the country large companies such as BHP Billiton, ExxonMobil, Shell, Anadarko, Statoil, Repsol, ONGC, Relliance and Petrobras that were interested in the Colombian market. Currently, the ANH is awarding the Permanent Procedure of Assigment Areas (PPAA), that represents an innovative model as opposed to the historical allocation modality of the ANH. This permanent competitive process allows us to take advantage of the commercial spaces of the industry in order to continuously promote blocks. For the incorporation of new reserves, the objective of the ANH is to formulate tools that allow the development of unconventional resources, expand the offshore and onshore exploratory frontier, and increase the improved oil recovery in mature fields.

Letter from the CEO:
In recent years, the energy industry has reached a crossroads – we face the dual challenge of providing the world with a consistent and affordable supply of energy, while moving toward a zero-carbon economy. In the face of such complex challenges, one thing is clear – no single solution will meet global energy and emissions goals. Rather, a combination of practical solutions rooted in science and engineering will carry us to a sustainable energy future. At MHI, we are facing these challenges head-on. We continue to expand our renewable energy portfolio, including investments in offshore wind, waste-to-energy solutions and “Power-to-X” technologies, which enable surplus energy generated by renewables to be stored and redeployed elsewhere. The fact remains, however, that 74% of global primary energy demand is still expected to be met by gas, oil, and coal in 2050. To that end, MHI is relentlessly pursuing cleaner, more efficient ways to make use of fossil fuels, including carbon capture technologies, more efficient natural gas turbines and hydrogen fuel mixes. We are looking forward to taking an important step in the journey to meet the needs of the future energy landscape with you at CERAWeek 2019.

Stanford Precourt Institute for Energy helps shape the university’s energy research and education efforts across campus. Stanford Energy’s goal is sustainable, affordable and secure energy for all people. Some 200 faculty members, together with their students, are creating ingenious technologies and policies to help make that happen.
Stanford Energy catalyzes collaborative research to solve real-world problems. For example, Stanford Energy’s Natural Gas Initiative is developing tools to quickly and cheaply find and fix methane leaks from well pads to city streets. A new “carbon dividend” proposal led by George Shultz, chair of the Hoover Institution Task Force on Energy Policy has been endorsed by 3,400 U.S. economists, including 27 Nobel laureates and all living former chairs of the Federal Reserve. Stanford Energy’s Bits & Watts is creating new software for automation of the electric grid. The new Sustainable Finance Initiative is working with governments, development banks and the private sector to rapidly accelerate global clean energy investments.
Companies have worked productively with Stanford Energy through its industrial affiliates program, gifts and the Strategic Energy Alliance for sponsored research. All of these programs help educate scholars in engineering, earth sciences, business, law and humanities to meet today’s global energy challenges. These students have spun out more than 70 energy-related companies – most in the past few years. Stanford Energy also brings together thought leaders from industry, finance, government and the non-profit sector, as it did with the recent Global Energy Forum, to create a common vision for our shared energy future. energy.stanford.edu
