Our activity in Ecuador

We arrived in Ecuador in 2001, to develop exploration and production activities in two blocks under a service provision contract.

The main part of our presence in the country is situated within the Waorani reserve in Yasuní National Park, due to the development of our upstream activity regarding Block 16.

We complement this activity with the distribution of specialized products and lubricants in the country through our partner Swissoil.

Block 67

Situated in the northern area of Block 16, it has a special importance for the block, as it's high degree of quality allows it to achieve an adequate mixture for the delivery of crude oil through the Heavy Crude Oil Pipeline. It currently produces around 4,000 barrels of petroleum per day.
  • Our Downstream operations

In addition to the Upstream projects, we are also developing the commercialization of lubricants, something that we've been doing with the help of our sponsor Swissoil.

This activity, that we've been dealing with since 2014, involves the distribution of a wide range of products for the automobile sector and marine and nautical industry. All products meet the strict quality guidelines set by international organisms and engine manufacturers that test, use and recommend our products.
