After the creation of the National Hydrocarbons Agency (ANH) in 2003, the Colombian oil and gas sector surged, and Colombia was revealed as a highly prospective and attractive country for national and international investors.
The ANH`s mission is to promote the optimal and sustainable realization of Colombia’s oil and gas resource endowment, and to contribute to the security of energy supply. As a result, the ANH has been able to attract more than 50 new investors and to increase and sustain the country`s oil and gas production.
The ANH proactively promotes the discovery of new and attractive opportunities. This year, three broad types of geological potential are being promoted:
• The first is the Colombia Round 2021, which is being readied to be launched in May and expected to conclude in November.) It is an open nomination process for more than 500 available blocks, including some 30 areas distributed in 8 onshore and offshore basins that are being offered directly by the ANH, with technical information and studies.
• The second type of potential rests in unconventional deposits which promise a great opportunity for the Colombian hydrocarbons industry.
• The third area of opportunity is on deep offshore exploration in the Caribbean Sea, where the ANH has conducted advanced geological studies that indicate the important presence of hydrocarbons systems, with both oil and gas potential. A representative group of companies, large and independent, including the NOC -Ecopetrol- are already active in the shallower waters of these basins.
The ANH is developing a vison for the role of Colombia`s hydrocarbons over the energy transition to 2040. It hinges on continuous improvement of fiscal and contract terms, award processes and administration standards, as well as and swift adaptation to upcoming challenges.

Schlumberger (SLB: NYSE) is a technology company that partners with customers to access energy. Our people, representing over 160 nationalities, are providing leading digital solutions and deploying innovative technologies to enable performance and sustainability for the global energy industry. With expertise in more than 120 countries, we collaborate to create technology that unlocks access to energy for the benefit of all. Our story begins with what it truly means to be a technology innovator. Our common sense of purpose unites our 82,000 people in supplying the industry’s most comprehensive range of products and services, from exploration through production, and integrated pore-to-pipeline solutions that optimize hydrocarbon recovery to deliver reservoir performance sustainably. We believe energy makes society progress: few parts of modern life, if any, are untouched by the raw materials of oil and gas. And it all starts with competent and talented teams working together to drill wells through subterranean environments they can never actually see. It takes a combination of engineering disciplines, along with computer science, geophysics, and metallurgy. Then there are astounding efforts to keep older wells pumping despite time’s inevitable drain on production. From a well’s cradle to grave, and everywhere in between—that is where the people of Schlumberger come in. In the early decades of the 20th century, Conrad and Marcel Schlumberger set out to understand the Earth’s subsurface structure using geophysical measurements. Their pioneering spirit enabled them to grow Schlumberger into the world’s first well logging company with a worldwide presence. That technology debut has built a 90-year legacy that still thrives on industry leadership and innovation—a clearly defined identity based on dedicated people “figuring it out." Our curiosity drives us to better understand what our customers do, how they do it, and what they need to help overcome their challenges.

One billion people live in energy poverty, and the world’s demand for electricity only continues to grow. In order to meet this rising demand and reduce emissions, the world needs clean, affordable LNG. Venture Global LNG is a long-term, low-cost provider of U.S. LNG to be supplied from resource rich North American natural gas basins. The company is currently constructing or developing over 50 MTPA of production capacity in Louisiana to provide clean, affordable energy to the world.
Venture Global is driving change in the U.S. LNG Industry. In the past, rising capital costs for greenfield projects have been absorbed in the LNG value chain, significantly limiting access to this valuable commodity. As a result, many markets have been unable to pay the price of LNG and instead resorted to building coal and lignite plants in order to meet their growing demand for energy. Venture Global is tackling this challenge directly by achieving significant cost reductions and passing them onto our customers while enhancing operational reliability and efficiency. Our strategy - to offer low cost, destination-free LNG to the market – supports fuel switching from coal and lignite-fired generation to lower carbon, cleaner natural gas– as well as complementing the build-out of new renewable generation.
Venture Global is committed to being a responsible corporate citizen by minimizing our projects’ impact on the environment, being a community partner, and operating with the highest standards of safety. These principles are all at the heart of everything we do, from the selection of our project sites, to our choice of optimized, high quality modular construction and efficient on-site power generation, and our partnerships with globally-renowned contractors with a commitment to excellence and safety.

Enbridge is North America’s premier energy infrastructure company, connecting supply with growing markets through its liquids pipelines, natural gas pipelines, and utilities and power businesses.
Enbridge transports about 20% of the natural gas consumed in the U.S., and about 25% of the crude oil produced in North America. Enbridge operates North America’s third-largest natural gas utility by consumer count; the company was an early investor in renewable energy, and has a growing offshore wind portfolio.
Enbridge operates the world’s longest and most complex crude oil and liquids transportation system—with approximately 17,000 miles of active crude pipeline across North America—and delivers more than 3 million barrels of crude oil and liquids, safely and reliably, every day.
Enbridge’s gas transmission and midstream pipelines cover about 26,000 miles in 31 U.S. states, five Canadian provinces and offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Enbridge transports more than 19 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas through an array of long-haul pipelines, and has about 438 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas storage capacity across North America.
Enbridge’s natural gas utility is the largest in North America by volume, distributing more than 2.5 Bcf/d of natural gas and serving about 3.7 million residential, commercial, institutional and industrial customers in Ontario and Quebec. Enbridge’s renewable energy portfolio includes wind, solar, geothermal and waste heat recovery facilities. These projects, either operating or under construction, have the capacity to generate nearly 2,000 megawatts (MW) net of zero-emission energy, and meet the electricity needs of nearly 900,000 homes.
