Middle Magdalena tight oil unconventional play

Report summary

The Colombian government has been promoting the development of unconventional oil and gas in order to ward off expected future shortfalls in domestic production. The largest shale reserves are believed to reside within the Middle Magdalena Valley basin, largely because of stacked pay zones that include the La Luna, Simiti and Tablazo formations. In an environment of depressed global prices, Colombian unconventional activity has slowed.
