Report summary

The Upper Magdalena Valley is a mature oil-prone basin located in the jungles of Colombia. Left-wing activists have a history of disrupting the oil and gas industry in the area, but operators have adapted and security concerns are effectively managed. Although the basin is mature with limited yet-to-find volumes, there is untested potential present in harder-to-identify traps. While the value of individual discoveries is small, successful exploration can yield healthy rates of return.
