    The Ministry of Hydrocarbons manages the activities related to hydrocarbons...

  • Energy Companies


    Petroecuador took control of the Amistad gas field in 2010 after the refusal of Noble Energy Inc. (NBL) to change its production-sharing contract to a new service agreement.

  • Energy Supply


    The country's marketed gas production is low (0.8 bcm in 2014), with one of the highest venting and flaring rates in South America (35% of gross production in 2014), although it is falling rapidly (71% in 2000). It is produced from the Amistad field in the Golf of Guayaquil.
