We expect the successful execution of Noble Energy's exploration projects in Colombia to contribute to the country's much needed energy self-sufficiency and security. The company's international experience speaks for our proven ability to efficiently progress commercial discoveries into development projects. We are looking to replicate our offshore success in Colombia's coastal areas.
Noble Energy is currently operating the Colombia-3 and Guajira Offshore-3 deep-water blocks with a 40 percent working interest. These exploration blocks are located in the Caribbean Sea, off Barranquilla and Santa Marta's shores.
Drilling is expected to take place at a depth close to 2,600 meters of water in 2021.
