Upstream - South America

South America

With operations in Brazil and Colombia, Anadarko is leveraging its deepwater expertise in these top oil-producing countries.

Success Rate

Seeking Deepwater Success in Colombia

Anadarko Colombia Company (ACC) is partnering with Colombia’s national oil company, Ecopetrol, in the early phases of deepwater exploration for oil and natural gas resources. ACC holds interest in approximately 16 million acres across nine blocks in the Caribbean offshore. 

Future Impact

In 2015, we made a significant play-opening discovery with our very first well, Kronos. The Kronos well encountered 130 – 230 net feet of natural gas pay confirming the presence of a working petroleum system and validating the geologic and seismic interpretations.

Colombia is among the top petroleum producing countries in South America, though ACC’s activities are among the first to test the country’s deepwater potential. Anadarko is among the most active and successful deepwater explorers with an industry-leading success rate of more than 60 percent over the last five years (industry average is less than 50 percent).
