The company Oleoducto de Crudos Pesados (OCP) started a new stage in its commercial relationship with Colombia through the ‘Segregation Project,’ which consists of transporting separately light and heavy crude.
It all began on June 11, OCP filled the first vessel with more than 418 million barrels of light crude (27-28 API). This fuel, for the most part, is produced by Gran Tierra Energy, the current operator of the Chaza field in Colombia, which produces 28 API crude oil.
“We rebranded ourselves, within the framework of hydrocarbon integration in the region, to benefit our customers and to continue creating value for the country,” said Andrés Mendizábal, president of the OCP. The pipeline began operations in 2003. It was designed to transport heavy crude (18 APIs). The new project will boost the economy and that of the borders. (I)
