Crown Point announces closure of Cruz del Sul offshore oil loading facility in Tierra del Fuego, Canadian Business Journal

Calgary, Alberta, March 9, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — (TSX-V: CWV): Crown Point Energy Inc. (“Crown Point” or “Company”) offshore oil loading facility in Cruz del Sul, Tierra del Fuego was closed and entered into force immediately.

YPF, the operator of Cruz del Sur’s oil storage and offshore loading facility, has announced that the offshore loading facility has been closed due to technical issues. YPF intended to abolish the offshore loading facility in July 2022, but has now decided to immediately suspend offshore loading operations.

Crown Point is working with a joint venture partner and YPF to build a 23km 6-inch oil pipeline connecting the Cruz del Sur oil storage facility and the San Martin oil field with the Rio Cullen Marine Terminal operated by Total Austral. The offshore loading facility of Cruz del Sul will be closed in late 2022. This project will be accelerated. However, tentatively, Crown Point, along with its joint venture partner, is arranging to export oil by truck to the Enap refinery in San Gregorio, Chile and the Rio Karen Marine Terminal operated by Total Austral in Tierra del Fuego. The selling prices of both San Gregorio and Rio Karen are linked to the price of Brent crude oil.
