“Building an E&P in Colombia with an outlook on sector funding”
with Nathan Piper, Head of O&G Research, Investec

Colombia made fiscal/regulatory changes through 2003-2008 that encouraged foreign investment leading to a doubling of production to over 1 mb/d. This was achieved largely by Exploration and Production (E&P) companies, rather than majors.

However, more broadly, the outlook for E&Ps is challenging. This follows poor share price performance, increasing ESG demands from investors, and balance sheets that still need to be repaired.

We consider the funding outlook for E&Ps, against this backdrop.
