Ecopetrol Forms Subsidiary for Transportation and Logistics of Hydrocarbon

Ecopetrol has announced that it has incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary named Cenit S.A.S which will specialise in the transportation and logistics of hydrocarbon in Colombia.

The newly established subsidiary will focus on increasing the production of hydrocarbon and the sale of crude and refined products in Colombia and the global market.

All of the transportation assets of Ecopetrol including its stake in the Colombia Pipeline, Ocensa, Bicentenario Pipeline and the Los Llanos Pipeline will be incorporated in the new company. Ecopetrol’s current contracts in transportation will also be transferred to the new company while retaining the conditions that have been agreed by both parties. Once the transfer of assets has been completed, the contractual and commercial relationship between the company and its customers will be undertaken. The new set of conditions which will govern future projects and contracts will be laid down in accordance with the local legislation. However, Ecopetrol will continue to operate and maintain the existing transportation infrastructure by entering into formal contracts with the new company, Cenit. The terms and conditions for the existing employees will not be changed. With the establishment of the new company, Ecopetrol will re-organise its processes and structures to commence full-fledged operations in the near future.

This decision of Ecopetrol will contribute in a positive way to achieving the 2020 corporate goals of the company and help in the expansion of its network through achieving high standards of industrial safety and environment conservation.
