Colombia searches for those responsible for Ecopetrol attacks

Bogota, Jan 25 (Prensa Latina) Members of the Colombian Police, the Army and the Attorney General's Office are reinforcing the search for those responsible for two attacks on Ecopetrol pipelines in El Centro district, Barrancabermeja municipality, Santander department.

Blu Radio reported that after a security council held with authorities in the above-mentioned municipality, where the largest oil refinery in the country is located, Mayor Alfonso Eljach confirmed that authorities are working to identify those who perpetrated the attacks on Sunday.

The actions affected the same crude and water pipeline that is very close to Ecopetrol’s Petroleum Museum, at a half hour drive from the urban sector of Barrancabermeja, the publication noted.

The company said that the detonations affected the pipeline at station 3A and the PIA 5 water injection plant, causing a spill and dents in the pipeline.

“Ecopetrol rejects the violent actions committed by third parties against the oil infrastructure of La Cira Infantas field. Immediately, Ecopetrol activated the Contingency Plan and the valves were closed. The events did not affect people,” it said in a statement.
