Crude oil production

Following the inauguration of the Panacocha field in 2009, the country's oil production increased by 3%/year until 2014, when it reached an all-time high of 28 Mt/year. It has been slowly decreasing since then (27.1 Mt/year in 2017), as Ecuador followed the OPEC production-cut programmes. Production comes from the east of the country, with the most productive fields being Shushufindi (35% ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In its NDC, Ecuador aims to reduce its energy-related emissions by 20.4-25% from BAU levels in 2025. This reduction target could be raised to 37.5-45.8% in 2025, provided the availability of international support.

CO2 emissions from fuel combustion increased 2-fold between 2000 and 2014 (5.5%/year). They are decreasing by 3%/year since then, to 35 Mt in 2017, mainly due to a ...
