Exxon Mobil Corp is in talks with Colombia's government in hopes of recovering its investment in a fracking pilot project as the U.S. oil major prepares to ditch upstream operations in the Andean country where the government is pushing through a fracking ban, two sources close to the discussions told Reuters.

Colombian majority-state-owned energy company Ecopetrol on Thursday said Chief Executive Felipe Bayon will leave his post on March 31, following more than five years in the position. Bayon's departure represents a shake-up for Colombia's biggest company and largest producer of oil - one of the Andean country's most important exports - during a drive by leftist President Gustavo Petro to accelerate the transition toward renewable energy. Choosing Bayon's replacement will involve a rigorous selection process by the company's board of directors, the company said in a statement.
Colombia's majority state-owned oil company Ecopetrol will invest up to around 30 trillion pesos ($6.2 billion) in 2023, it said on Friday, with the main focus on energy security rather than energy transition. The company has seen soaring profits in 2022 amid higher oil prices and a strong U.S dollar. Third-quarter net profits more than doubled to 9.51 trillion pesos, Ecopetrol reported last month.
BOGOTA (Reuters) -Colombian state oil company Ecopetrol on Tuesday reported its third-quarter net profit more than doubled to 9.51 trillion pesos ($1.90 billion), rising 150% from a year earlier, as production returned to levels not seen since before the coronavirus pandemic. "The operational and commercial performance, added to a favorable international crude oil price, allowed us to achieve better realization prices for our crude," Ecopetrol Chief Executive Felipe Bayon said in the filing. Ecopetrol's output was battered during the pandemic as global appetite for oil slumped.
