“Heavy Oil is Driving the Growth of Oil Production in Colombia”

Increasing exploration and production is driving the emergence of the heavy oil industry in Colombia. In the past 10 years, heavy oil production from the country has increased from almost nil to 127.8 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe). The main reason for the growth in heavy oil production in the country is the start of production from new fields in the country's heavy oil-rich Llanos basin. Additionally, increased exploration in several heavy oil-rich blocks in the Llanos basin could further increase production in the future.
