Project Details

On-site electric power supply through generation with associated gas for the Casabe Peñas Blancas Field
Project Identifier
Project Description
Ecopetrol took measures to use the associated gas that was burning in flares in the oil fields Casabe (Condor), Casabe South and Peñas Blancas. The project installed two power plants, one in the Casabe (Condor) field and the other in the Casabe South field, that are powered by the recovered associated gas. The project avoids emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) associated with the previous activity of burning the residual gas in flares, by using the gas for the generation of electricity, and reducing the emissions associated with the other sources of electric power that supply the production facilities.
