Ecopetrol, one of the principal petroleum companies in Latin America, has been expanding
its reach deeper into the forests of Colombia. Drilling exploratory wells in remote locations
such as the Putumayo basin concurs with a very aggressive growth strategy. The area around Orito is an extremely dense, undulating forest with poor soils and wet subgrades, nearly impossible to drive through without proper access.
In this case study, Geo Products shows how access was made possible with the support of a cellular confinement system.
