Canacol is the leading independent gas exploration and production company in Colombia. Our goal is to create prosperity and satisfaction for all our stakeholders by being the most reliable and sustainable producer of energy in Latin America.
Since our founding in 2008, Canacol has grown by applying innovation and technical expertise in underexplored oil and gas plays in Latin America. Starting in 2012 we have shifted from being predominantly oil-focused, to being mainly gas-focused today. We did so in order to capture full value from our natural gas potential onshore northern Colombia, where we have been the only active gas driller for the last 5 years, creating a significant competitive edge over potential new entrants to the play, in which we have had significant success.
Canacol believes its people, together with the communities the company works in, are the key to long-term success. That is why we have focused on attracting and retaining one of the top exploration and production teams in Latin America, and why we hold ourselves to the highest standards of corporate social responsibility.
