Repsol worldwide


Repsol in Venezuela. View of an oil derrick at sunset
Located south of the Caribbean sea, Venezuela is highly rich in natural resources. As a founding member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, Venezuela is both a producer and an exporter of this energy resource, and is a world leader in exports of natural gas, liquefied gas, butane, and propane.

Our activity in Venezuela

We came to Venezuela in 1993 to develop our Upstream business through different projects spread out across the country. Since then, we have been managing several crude and gas assets there in the development and production phase, which has enabled us to gain vast experience in light and medium crude, and associated and non-associated gas. Some examples of this include our work with offshore gas in the Perla Field, the crude development projects in Petrocarabobo, and the exploration and exploitation of gaseous hydrocarbons in the Quiriquire block.

Perla Project in Cardón IV

This area is located in the Gulf of Venezuela and we have a 50% stake in developing it alongside Eni. The Perla Field has been considered one of Repsol’s greatest discoveries since 2015, and it is one of Latin America’s largest offshore gas fields. Production is currently expected to reach 1.2 billion cubic feet of gas per day.

Prioritizing growth

Education, health, and wellbeing are all at the heart of our social commitment in Venezuela. Since the beginning, we have been concerned with caring for both the environment and the people around us through social projects that help to improve and optimize resources.

Casa de Labores Pesqueras (Fishing Equipment Workshop)

We have created a refuge for fishermen from Connpa La Macolla, the towns of Carirubana and Los Taques, and in the parish of Jadacaquiva in Punta Macolla, for the fish migration period.

Bringing electricity to towns

We brought electricity to the town of Punto Macolla and the surrounding area by installing hybrid systems (wind, photovoltaic, and diesel) to generate electricity, supplying eight homes and a school.

Culture of recycling

Our commitment to promoting a culture of recycling has led us to organize three editions of the Tapatón activity together with Fundación Tapas Anzoátegui. The initiative consists of collecting 10 tons of plastic to help the children at the Luis Razetti Hospital while spreading awareness and doing our bit for the environment.
