TABLE-Colombia April crude output slides 10.6% as pandemic hits demand, prices

    BOGOTA, June 1 (Reuters) - Crude oil production in Colombia
averaged 796,164 barrels per day (bpd) in April, the energy
ministry said on Monday, down 10.6% from a year earlier due to
crashing oil prices slumping fuel demand during the coronavirus
pandemic. 
    Natural gas output in April was 827 million cubic feet per
day (mcfd), the ministry said in a statement, down 19% compared
with the same month last year.  
    State-run Ecopetrol produces a majority of
Colombia's oil. 
    Daily oil production averaged 885,851 bpd in 2019. The
government expects crude output this year to be in a range of
750,000 to 850,000 bpd, down from earlier estimates of around
900,000 bpd owing to the negative impact of coronavirus on
global oil markets.
    The following is a breakdown of Colombia's average daily oil
output by month.
