Industry Leaders in Hydrocarbon Sector Hold a Forum on Colombian Opportunities

On March 4, a forum was held at the Baker Institute at Rice University in Houston Texas. Industry Leaders from Colombia and the United States had a private conversation prior to the forum, in a panel where they discussed Colombia’s political, social and economic challenges and how these can impact the hydrocarbon industry.

Diego Mesa Puyo, Colombia’s deputy minister of energy & mines spoke at the panel, named Latin American Energy Forum. He was joined by exponents from the Baker Institute, Visión Américas, and the hydrocarbon sector.

The open forum started afterwards at the same venue, discussing how Colombia is continuing to work hard to promote oil investments, and how it has managed to attract new investors and reactivate the hydrocarbon industry in the country. The honorable Roger Noriega, former Amb. to the Organization or American states opened the discussion. While Jason Marczark explained the biggest challenges and opportunities facing the country today.

The forum was closed by Diego Mesa Puyo, who gave a moving and informative keynote about unconventional energies being explored in the country, and how investments would greatly benefit the hydrocarbon sector.

Visión Américas was proudly one of the organizers of this successful event.
