Pacific Rubiales Energy announced that while it is a general policy not to comment on market or media rumours, the Company would like to formally respond to completely untrue media reports published in Colombia.
Recent articles, reported in various Colombian newspapers, claim that Pacific Rubiales is involved in a politically motivated plot against the Venezuelan government. The allegations are absurd and have no factual basis. Pacific Rubiales categorically denies these reports and any involvement in these untrue allegations.
Pacific Rubiales is a Canadian incorporated and publicly listed company and as such holds itself to the highest standards of corporate governance. The Company, which has oil and gas operations and development properties in Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Guatemala, Guyana and Papua New Guinea, is focused on providing value to its various stakeholders and conducts all of its activities in a sustainable and socially responsible manner.
