Colombia PPAA round marks a long-awaited return

Report summary

Colombia`s return to the bid round scene proved to be remarkable. After half a decade away from licensing rounds, the first cycle of the Permanent Offer (PPAA) auction resulted in 11 out of 20 areas awarded. The terms are unchanged but a new administration is boosting confidence in the sector. These results demonstrate the success of the government's effort to extend the country's reserves. We expect the awarded blocks to increase the remaining reserves by 20% and spur investment.

Table of contents

  • Executive Summary
  • First cycle of licensing rounds closes with more than half of the blocks awarded
