Established in 1971, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) is one of the world’s leading energy producers. Over its 45-year history, ADNOC has steadily diversified and expanded its operations, comprising 18 companies and subsidiaries to create an integrated oil and gas company spanning exploration and production, refining, petrochemicals and distribution.
ADNOC plays a central role in the United Arab Emirates’ economic development; managing, producing and preserving the Emirate’s hydrocarbon resources. ADNOC pioneers and applies innovative technology to maximize value and to ensure it meets the challenges of an ever-changing energy market, while remaining an integral part of the UAE economy.
The National Hydrocarbons Agency (ANH) is the administrator of the country’s hydrocarbons resources. Our objective is to make Colombia an attractive country for foreign and national investment. The new regulatory framework provides elements that create an environment of great confidence for investors. Areas are assigned through a transparent and efficient process with management and monitoring mechanisms that meet high international standards.
In addition, the implementation of incentives and stable regulation has brought to the country large companies such as BHP Billiton, ExxonMobil, Shell, Anadarko, Statoil, Repsol and Petrobras, which until then had no interest in the Colombian market.
More than 35,000 kilometers of seismic developed in the past two years in the Colombian Caribbean Sea, clearly reflect the interest of major companies on the hydrocarbon potential in our oceans.
In order to increase hydrocarbon reserves and production, the ANH has set forth objectives such as boosting E&P activity by creating attractive investment opportunities, enhancing the recovery factor in the Country’s mature basins, advancing the development of Colombia, focused on Offshore and Unconventional resources, ensuring contractual and economic competitiveness to allow higher investment and reserve incorporation. All this, under a stable and responsible social & environmental legal frame.
Today, Colombia presents a regime with economic and political stability, a fully operational Agency, high investor confidence and interesting geological potential taking into account 3P reserves and contingent resources identified in areas of exploration, evaluation and production that amount to 5,500 MMBPE (millions of barrels of oil equivalent). To increase our reserves, the ANH aims to expand the hydrocarbon frontier by exploring in areas of the country in which no activity has been carried out, to increase the recovery factor in the mature fields and to formulate tools that allow the development of unconventional resources.
Colombia is a sea of opportunity.
