Event concept

Energy investment, policy and project development in the Andes and Central America.

In its 5th year, the Andean Energy Summit is Latin America´s most forward thinking, senior executive energy forum that will address the financial, regulatory, technological and operational challenges facing oil & gas, electric power, and renewable energy operators in the Andes and Central America.

Held in the energy capital of the Andes (Bogota, Colombia), the Summit will unite a faculty of energy project developers, regulators and investors who will address key trends, opportunities and challenges in driving the industry forward. Investment plans, environmental issues, new regulations and sector specific updates will be the focus of the agenda and the conversations held at the Summit.

This is the business Summit where new business relationships are created: Critical business relationships that will enable the growth of your business in 2011 and beyond. In 2010, the Andean Energy Summit united over 300 senior executives from over 22 countries, who participated in over 30 keynotes, case studies and panel discussions led by 50 senior level speakers from some of the most important energy companies operating in the Andes and Central America.

In 2011, we expect even higher attendance, better quality panel discussions, and more high level networking activities. We look forward to hosting you in July, 2011 in Bogota!

3 reasons to attend this conference:

  • Expand your network
  • Reach key customers & prospects for your company
  • Learn about major energy projects, investments & trends

An aside: Having attended previous Andean Energy Summits, I can attest that networking is an important componant of the summits. And the net connections range widely among many different fields, even those outside of the energy field. For instance I met a US maritime lawyer & legal expert at the last summit who became an important consultant for one of my clients who is in the oil industry. A maritime lawyer practices the law as it pertains to navigable fresh waters in the United States, as well as to the open water such as in the Gulf of Mexico or along the coastal seaboard of the US. SInce my client was drilling for oil in the Gulf of Mexico with an American partner, the maritime lawyer's advice was particularly helpful. I was given a finder's fee for the introduction/ recommendation which was also sweet.

Conference overview:

The conference will feature over 40 speakers, 25 keynotes, case studies, and panel discussions led by some of the most innovative energy leaders operating, investing in, or regulating the Andean and Central American energy markets.

The goal of the Andean Energy Summit is to empower our attendees to make better decisions about where to invest, how to create better efficiencies in your operation, and how to navigate locale regulatory regimes.

government supports lng export project - pacific rubiales ceo - colombia

Colombia's government has given its full backing to Canadian oil firm Pacific Rubiales' (TSX: PRE) plans to begin the country's first LNG export program from the La Creciente field in late 2012, according to CEO Ronald Pantin. "The government of Colombia is behind this project. We have all the support and decrees we need," Pantin told the firm's annual general meeting in Toronto, Canada. Pacific announced plans to begin small-scale LNG exports to the Caribbean from the La Creciente gas field on the SSJN-7 license earlier this month. The company has enlisted the help of Swiss LNG transport company Exmar for the exports, and will sell the gas at prices between US$4.50/MBTU and US$5/MBTU. According to a company estimates, around 11% of its international oil cargoes currently go to Central America and the Caribbean. Pantin also said the company is looking to diversify away from its North American market, which accounts for about 60% of its oil cargoes, by increasing its presence in new economic markets such as India and China. Within Colombia, Pantin confirmed that construction of the US$4.2bn, 450,000b/d capacity Bicentenario pipeline is currently progressing well. The US$1bn first phase of the project, involving the construction of a 120,000b/d stretch between Araguaney in Casanare department and Banadia in Arauca, is due online by the end of the year. Pacific has a 32% share in the venture alongside NOC Ecopetrol and several other Canadian juniors. Ronald Pantin estará presente en la próxima Andean Energy Summit como parte de la sesión que discutirá el papel que tienen las petroleras y gasíferas Junior e independientes en Colombia. En este panel, lo acompañaran: Julian García (presidente, Gran Tierra Energy), Huimin Ye (COO, Mansarovar Energy) y John Francis Scott (COO, Petrominerales) empresa con la que también participa en la construcción del ducto Bicentenario.
