Strategic / New Business:

  • Entry to Peru (GeoPark’s fifth country platform in Latin America) in October 2014 through the acquisition of the Morona Block (GeoPark will operate with a 75% WI) in a joint venture with Petroperu, the Peruvian state-owned oil and gas company. The Morona Block includes a discovered oil field (55 million 2P PRMS reserves certified by Ryder Scott) and attractive high impact exploration potential (200 to 600 million barrels of exploration resources).
  • Expansion of Colombian asset portfolio in November 2014 through a farm-in with the SK Group for the CPO-4 Block in Llanos Basin (GeoPark will operate with a 50% WI).

James F. Park, GeoPark Chief Executive Officer, said, “Another strong quarter on our way to a successful year of operational, financial and business growth. GeoPark’s consistent year-to-year growth performance confirms the strength of our long term risk-balanced multi-country strategy in Latin America. It also positions us to continue to prosper even in a declining oil price environment – with our high netback projects, discretional work programs, strong balance sheet, and self-funding production base of 21,000 boepd. Our exploration and drilling efforts continue to produce results – most importantly with the Tigana oil field and reserve expansion in Colombia, and Tigana’s conversion into a low risk high potential production growth platform. We are also excited about our entry into Peru with the acquisition of the Morona Block with its high impact discovered Situche Central oil field and big exploration potential – and which adds further value and depth to GeoPark’s significant organic inventory of development and exploration opportunities over our 31 blocks and 6 million acres.”
