Crude Oil Production
Oil production increased by 2.5% in 2019 to 46 Mt after decreasing from 52 Mt in 2015 to 44 Mt in 2018. Between 2007 and 2011, it rose at the very rapid pace of 15%/year thanks to greater investments in the sector.
The total capacity of oil pipelines reaches 1.2 mb/d (2017).
The OCENSA, Cano Limon and Alto Magdalena oil pipelines connect the fields of Cusiana-Cupiagua, Cano Limon and Neiva fields, respectively, to the Caribbean port of Covenas.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
According to its NDC, Colombia has pledged to cut GHG emissions by at least 20% in 2030 compared to a BAU scenario, a target that could be raised to 25% or 30%, if it receives financial backing from the international community.
CO2 emissions from energy combustion increased by 55% (around 6%/year) between 2008 and 2016. After a sharp decrease of 14% in 2017 due to the industry and power sectors, they increased again rapidly in 2018 and 2019 by around 5%/year to 83 MtCO2.
