Colombia’s river of opportunity

February 14, 2019


Nicolás Daguerre, general manager of Trafigura Colombia, talks to TOGY about why the company is focusing on smaller producers, the Magdalena River’s logistics potential and the infrastructure needed to make the river vital to logistics operations. One of the world’s largest independent oil traders, Trafigura has been trading with Ecopetrol since its early years.

On multimodal logistics networks: “The Magdalena River will be an important logistical solution for all kinds of trade in Colombia for the next 30 years. For that to happen, we need to work together to turn it into a highway. We have a lot of volume on the river, but there still is a lot to be done.”

On tailored solutions: “We want E&P companies focusing on their core skills to produce barrels, add reserves and so on. Depending on location and quality, we decide on the best method to transport their crude oil. If we need to use the pipeline, we do. If we need to truck the oil all the way to Ecuador, we do that. If the best alternative is to use our multimodal transport via the Magdalena River, we do this as well.”

On industry changes: “The refinery in Barrancabermeja is refining crude oil from the United States, which was impossible to even think of a couple of years ago. Now it is happening because we are providing an alternative, cost effective supply route.”

On river advantages: “If Colombia develops offshore activities at levels that are interesting for the Barrancabermeja Refinery, the river would be the perfect solution to transport those reserves inland. If you think about shale oil and fracking in the Barrancabermeja and Santander regions and the Magdalena Valley, there is nothing better positioned than the river to help with transport.”
