Bombs damage Colombia’s Mansoya and Cano Limon pipelines


Colombian state-run oil company Ecopetrol reported two bomb attacks on its pipelines on Tuesday – the first caused a fire on the Mansoya Orito pipeline, while the second damaged the Cano Limon pipeline, spilling crude into a nearby ravine.

The Mansoya Orito, in southern Putumayo, close to the border with Ecuador, was hit overnight. It was not operating during the attack, Ecopetrol said in a statement early on Tuesday.

The 73.4-kilometer pipeline has capacity to transport about 24,000 barrels of crude daily from fields in Putumayo.
