  • Signed the license agreement with the ANP (Agência Nacional do Petróleo, Brazil’s National Agency of Petroleum) for the Sergipe Alagoas Block in Brazil awarded during Round 12Note: The significant increase in GeoPark’s Colombian oil production of 88% in 1Q2014 was not entirely reflected in net revenues or Adjusted EBITDA for the period, mainly due to some delays in oil deliveries and increased oil inventory. During the first quarter of 2014, Ecopetrol allocated larger volumes of its own oil production to exports because of an oil refinery shut down, temporarily affecting the volumes received from GeoPark and other Colombian oil producers at the port of Coveñas. This situation has normalized in May 2014, and is not expected to generate any impact on the Company’s 2014 results.
