Colombian gas exports to Venezuela collapse in January

Feb 12, 2010 01:00 AM

Exports of Colombian gas to Venezuela declined to 60 mm cfpd in January compared with an average of 179 mm cfpd last year, the US oil company Chevron reported.
The sharp decline in gas supply could further increase energy problems in the western region of Venezuela. This part of the country has been affected by serious power outages that may last seven hours, due to the energy crisis.

"Average export in January amounted to 60 mm cfpd," said the oil company.
The capacity of the gas pipeline, inaugurated by Presidents Alvaro Uribe and Hugo Chavez in October 2007, is 500 mm cfpd and it has carried up to 300 mm cfpd in recent years.

Gas demand in Colombia has increased in order to supply thermal power plants.
Colombian authorities have implemented a rationing plan which has affected the use of hydroelectric plants to address the lack of rain in the Andean region.
