The Colombia Energy Summit will serve as a platform to discuss the latest developments taking place across the industry and the opportunities the country has to offer across the oil & gas and renewable sectors. Encouraging diversification of the energy matrix, increased international dialogue, partnerships for growth, and taking a strategic look at the market, the Summit will provide a forum to discuss Colombia’s evolving energy scene.

Agenda

“ ”

Colombia’s gas production only just covered domestic consumption in 2017, however with world class potential for renewable energy sources, fracking tipped to triple proven oil reserves, and the country leading globally for the number of oil & gas discoveries in Q2 2019, Colombia is re-emerging as a key opportunity for energy development.

The Colombia Energy Summit will serve as a platform to discuss the latest developments taking place across the industry and the opportunities the country has to offer across the oil & gas and renewable sectors. Encouraging diversification of the energy matrix, increased international dialogue, partnerships for growth, and taking a strategic look at the market, the Summit will provide a forum to discuss Colombia’s evolving energy scene. 

Bringing together key stakeholders from across the value chain, including central & local government, operators, service & solution providers, academia, and investors, the summit will focus upon diversifying energy strategy, building international partnerships & joint ventures, meeting changing domestic & international energy demands, attracting fresh investment, and implementing enhanced technologies across the supply chain.

Sessions One and Two

Session 1 - Infrastructure

Addressing the infrastructure gap is critical to enabling the development of Colombia’s energy industry. Transportation presents a major constraint for the sector due to insufficiencies in the pipeline network causing heavier reliance upon trucks for transportation which is damaging roads and increasing costs. Lack of developed oil and gas infrastructure also complicates the task of finding hydrocarbon resource hidden deep offshore or in inaccessible areas. This session will consider the need to strengthen transportation capacity and infrastructure security. Key themes will include challenges faced, what needs to be done moving forward to enhance operations, Ministry of Mines & Energy incentives for the construction of new pipelines, and the urgent need for investment in hydrocarbon transportation.
