This authorization was announced as a follow-up to the decision taken by the Board of Directors of Ecopetrol S.A. on June 15, 2012 to create Cenit, a subsidiary company fully owned by Ecopetrol, specialized in hydrocarbon transport and logistics in Colombia.  

The transfer of the shares of Ecopetrol S.A. in these companies will facilitate the fulfillment of Cenit's corporate purpose and meet the national oil industry's growing needs resulting from the increase in hydrocarbon production and increased sales of crude and refined products, both in Colombia and to international markets.
