Packers Plus expands operations in Colombia in partnership with Gran Tierra

Packers Plus Energy Services Inc. has partnered with Gran Tierra Energy to optimize well performance as the company advances its conventional development program in Colombia.

Using a Packers Plus multi-stage completion system, the operator successfully stimulated the targeted reservoir through a horizontal wellbore with a 10-stage completion.

"Gran Tierra is focused on growth and creating value in the proven hydrocarbon producing basins of Colombia," said Gary Guidry, president and chief executive officer of Calgary-based Gran Tierra Energy, which also has offices in Mexico and Peru.

Packers Plus said it has been at the forefront of pushing completion capability boundaries in Latin America for over a decade. The Packers Plus multi-stage completion system allows for exact placement of the acid treatment in one continuous pumping operation.

The technology has been an efficient and cost-effective method for both conventional and unconventional resource development in energy markets around the world.

"As more operators focus their efforts on opportunities in Colombia, our goal is to introduce and accelerate new technology and completion capabilities to enhance well performance," Packers Plus president Ian Bryant said in a statement.
