Ecopetrol announces big gas find at Caribbean Well shared with Anadarko

Colombia’s state oil firm Ecopetrol has made the country’s biggest gas find in 28 years at a southern Caribbean Sea well it jointly works with Texas-based Anadarko Petroleum, according to Reuters.

In Ecopetrol’s announcement on Wednesday the company said the find is at a depth between 3,675 and 4,415 metres below sea level in adjacent blocks near to the Kronos-1 and Purple Angel-1 wells.

The nation’s president Juan Manuel Santos Calderon said it was such a significant find that Colombia could be self-sufficient in gas for decades.
