Indeed, NE Energy’s team has extensive technical expertise and a proven track record of building companies and creating value in South America.

Furthermore, back in September, NG Energy received by Colombian authorities the environmental license. This license allowed the company to start exploratory drilling in the block.

It also included permission for civil works, production infrastructure; and the construction of up to 11 locations for a total of 22 wells. Back then, the company started construction of the road and pad for the first well, Magico-1X. The whole SN-9 block has 51,9 billion cubic feet of estimated oil resources.

Finally, all of these activities will be accelerated by the company’s private placement. Particularly, the proceeds will allow the drilling rig to move seamlessly from location to location, saving several weeks per well.
