    An aerial view shows the Campo Rubiales oil field camp in Meta, eastern Colombia October 5, 2011. Colombian Energy Minister Mauricio Cardenas said on Wednesday the nation expected oil production to recover to 950,000 barrels per day in October after demonstrations hit output last month. Major oil companies in Latin America's No. 4 crude producer have been rocked this year by protests demanding more local jobs and social investment, which the industry sees as more of a threat than the rebels still plaguing the Andean nation.
