James F. Park, Chief Executive Officer of GeoPark, said: “Our third quarter financial results reflect our operating success through the year – and, despite market volatility in the beginning of the year, our growing cash flow has already fully-funded our total 2016 work program. Operating and financial growth is being driven by the successful production, development and appraisal of the Tigana/Jacana oil field complex in Colombia – where its attractive geology and low cost operating structure suggest big economic potential and a powerful engine of growth for GeoPark for the next 3-4 years. New results from testing and drilling this play are expected during the Fourth Quarter 2016.”
