Maurel & Prom Report Accident at Colombian Field
A storage tank of a capacity of 500 barrels exploded at 4.30pm, Bogota time on July 21, 2008, on the Ocelote field in Colombia, for which Maurel & Prom is the Operator (100%), causing the death of three employees working for external companies and present on the field.
Other tanks of a similar capacity were also destroyed or damaged. However, the effect on the field's production should be non-significant.
An inquiry is taking place to determine the origin of this accident, which at this stage seems purely accidental.
