Colombian Oil Producers, The Profitable Ones, like Pacific Rubiales, Gran Tierra, and Yes Canacol Energy (  Charle Gamba, CEO and President of Canacol, stated "This transaction strengthens our productive base with stable low cost production and associated cash flows under long term sales contracts, and increases our net 2P reserves and deemed volumes to approximately 32 MMboe of oil and gas. The size of the combined company and its stable production and cash flow streams will facilitate easier access to capital and open up additional consolidation opportunities, particularly in Colombia. The transaction positions us to take a leading role in an expanding gas market in Colombia at a low entry price, and also adds three conventional heavy oil exploration contracts to our already extensive exploration position in the Caguan - Putumayo basin. With interests in 29 E&P contracts, the combined company will have one of the largest and most diverse conventional and non-conventional oil and gas exploration portfolios in Colombia".
