Company descriptionPetrominerales Ltd. (Petrominerales) is a Canadian company involved in the exploration, development and production of crude oil in Colombia and Peru. The Company produces oil in Colombia with 14 exploration blocks covering a total of 1.8 million acres in the Llanos and Putumayo Basins, and 2.6 million gross acres in the Ucayali Basin of Peru. Petrominerales is 66% owned by Petrobank Energy and Resources Ltd. Petrominerales Colombia Ltd. (PCL) is the Company’s main operating subsidiary. In April 2010, the Company completed its acquisition of PanAndean Resources plc. As a result of this acquisition, Petrominerales acquired four additional exploration blocks in Peru consisting of 6.7 million gross acres (2.6 net acres) and one, 87,383 acre, exploration block in Colombia.
Products and servicesIn April 2010, Petrominerales completed the acquisition of PanAndean Resources plc for approximately US$29 million bringing 6.8 million gross acres (3.9 million net acres) in Peru and a 100 percent working interest in the Antorcha Block in the Middle Magdalena Basin of Colombia. The acquisition of this acreage will give Petrominerales a strategically significant land position in this highly underexplored basin. Petrominerales’ additional Peruvian assets are:
