Abstract: Colombian Energy Minister Mauricio Cárdenas said earlier this month that the FARC has stepped up attacks on oil and mining infrastructure in order to extort companies after changes to royalty distributions cut into the rebel group's finances. There have been more than 40 bombings in Colombia thus far this year, doubling the pace of recent years. What accounts for the rise in rebel attacks and where are they most prevalent? How serious of a threat are the attacks, extortion and kidnappings to Colombia's oil sector? What needs to be done to improve the security of the sector?
