Colombia's Cano Limon flows for first time in months

Pumping has resumed on the Cano Limon-Covenas pipeline ...

Pumping has resumed on the Cano Limon-Covenas pipeline for the first time in months following repairs to damage caused by the 108th known attack on the line this year, an official at field operator Occidental Petroleum's offices in Bogota said early Friday. "We're filling the line," the official said hesitantly. Except for a few short bursts of pumping, the pipeline, Colombia's second largest, has been paralyzed since February. The stoppage has crippled Oxy's operations in Colombia and impoverished the department of Arauca in the oil-rich Northwest, which has not received anticipated royalty payments from crude sales. Leftist rebels regularly target Colombia's oil infrastructure as part of its campaign against what they regard as excessive multinational investment in the country.
