Canacol Energy is a natural gas exploration and production company primarily focused on Colombia.

Investment summary

Canacol Energy is an oil and gas company involved in the exploration and production of natural gas with operations in Colombia. In August 2019 the company achieved a record production of 217mmscfd. This is a significant milestone for the company in Colombia and was made possible by the completion of the Jobo to Cartagena pipeline. Canacol is now working with its partners for a new export pipeline to Medellin that would expand export capacity to 315mmscfd by the beginning of 2023. High exploration and appraisal success rates (historically above 80%) and over 2.6tcf of unrisked prospective resource should enable reserve life expansion. Low well costs, excellent reservoir quality and high-unconstrained flow rates, combined with largely fixed gas pricing, provide visibility of free cash flows. Our 2P + risked exploration NAV currently stands at C$6.40/share.
