Chart of the day is... update of (last did to May) monthly oil production in Colombia, 2007 to date.

Yesterday we got the July 2011 figures from the Mining & Energy minister and Colombia pumped an average of 929,226 barrels per day (which would have been more but for that Rubiales protest a couple of weeks ago that promised didn't exist). That compares 783K barrels in July 2010, 657k barrels in July 2009 and I could continue. Perhaps the best metric is that Colombia's barrel-per-day output in the first seven months of 2011 is 16.5% up on the same period of last year. Historical data from here.
