Bnamericas Published: Monday, February 16, 2015

Colombian state oil firm Ecopetrol will drill three new deepwater wells this year, the company said in a release.

The Kronos and Calasú wells will be drilled offshore Colombia, and the third well in the US Gulf of Mexico.

The Calasú well is located in the Fuerte Norte block and is jointly operated by Ecopetrol and Anadarko. Kronos is located in the Fuerte Sur block and is also operated by the two firms.

The Gulf of Mexico well will be drilled by Sea Eagle with Murphy acting as operator, the statement said.

Ecopetrol will invest around US$200mn in 2015 offshore exploration, following three new offshore discoveries in 2014 with a 37.5% success rate. Investment last year in offshore discoveries totaled US$632mn, of which US$116mn was for the Colombian Caribbean.
