    Exploration

    The search for oil and gas reservoirs is of the utmost importance, and we dedicate a large part of our time and technology to geology, geophysics, and environmental impact studies that help us to determine an area's potential.
  • Development

    Development

    We implement a collection system and run processing plants, and we ensure that extraction processes are sustainable, safe, and transparent even before beginning operations, in line with the most stringent standards.
  • Production

    Production

    When the facilities are ready to begin extraction operations, our teams get to work in order to use the reservoir's resources to their full potential. In addition to extracting oil and gas, we constantly perform maintenance tasks and transport hydrocarbons under the strictest conditions.

Capable of creating value

We are always efficiently seeking new opportunities with both the planet and society in mind.

The best technology

Our Technology Center is an international leader in energy research, where more than 200 researchers and scientist work to find solutions to the energy challenges of the future. The Upstream area specializes in developing methods to reduce uncertainty and improve project success rates, minimizing the environmental impact under the strictest safety standards. To do so, they use artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to make decisions, as well as advanced sensors to build oil wells.
