Ecopetrol confirms Colombian pipeline rupture after attack

Ecopetrol SA has activated a contingency plan for the Cano Limon-Covenas pipeline in Colombia after a Sept. 4 attack caused a rupture, according to a Sept. 5 statement from the state-controlled company.

The 485-mile pipeline, which can transport up to 210,000 barrels per day, had reportedly already been shut for maintenance. The incident has not impacted production at the Cano Limon field, operated by Occidental Petroleum Corp., or exports, according to a Sept. 5 article from Reuters.

The latest incident occurred in the Norte de Santander province. The pipeline has been attacked 63 times this year, the company said.

Although the company did not name the group responsible, the attack has been linked to the National Liberation Army, which regularly bombs the country's oil infrastructure, Reuters said.
