Natural Gas Explosion Overnight in Louisiana, No Injuries

Natural gas explosion overnight in Louisiana, no injuries—WAFB reported: Fires are nearly burned out after a natural gas explosion overnight in north Louisiana.

No injuries were reported. The cause of the explosion is under investigation.

Hocol Discovers Natural Gas in Colombia

Kallanish Energy reports: Colombian exploration and production company Hocol announced Wednesday a gas discovery in Colombia, Kallanish Energy learns. The company, a subsidiary of Colombia’s state-owned Ecopetrol, has a 100% interest in the onshore block which is located in the Córdoba Department. The Arrecife well reached a final depth of 10,050 feet and the Upper Oro Ciénaga formation at a depth of 7,173 feet. It found sandstones with natural gas at several intervals of the Miocene geological age formation. During the appraisal phase, production levels ranged between 3 million cubic feet per day and 10 Mmcf/d, with very low condensate content and no formation water production. “This discovery leverages the exploratory strategy of Hocol and its Ecopetrol Group, which continues to strengthen its position as a gas producer in northern Colombia,” said Rafael Guzmán, President of Hocol, in a release.
