Canacol Energy Ltd. is pleased to announce that its 82 km long Sabanas gas flowline is connected and buried, and is currently in the final stage of pressure testing.

The flowline is anticipated to commence transportation of gas on Tuesday 5 December 2017, on which date the flowline will transport approximately 20 million ft3/d of gas from the Corporation’s Jobo gas processing facility to the Promigas S.A. export line at Bremen.

The gas will be sold to consumers in the city of Cartagena. Gas sales for the months of October and November 2017, were 84.1 million ft3/d, with oil sales for the same period of 3025 bpd of oil. Upon completion of the second gas compression station scheduled for mid January 2018, the Sabanas flowline will reach its full transportation capacity of 40 million ft3/d.

Charle Gamba, President and CEO of Canacol, commented: “We are pleased to have reached this important milestone, and we remain focused on completing the second compression station and lifting transport capacity along the Sabanas to 40 million ft3/d in January of 2018. Looking forward to 2018 the focus will shift to building our gas production capacity to allow us to achieve our next milestone of 230 million ft3/d of gas sales in December 2018 via the second expansion of the Promigas pipeline from Jobo to Cartagena and Baranquilla. We shall be releasing our 2018 guidance in a couple weeks, which will outline the details associated with this objective.”
