Ecuador’s Energy Minister Calls For Audit Of Gasvesubio Export

(Energy Analytics Institute, Piero Stewart, 10.Nov.2018) — Ecuador’s Minister of Energy and Non-Renewable Natural Resources Carlos Pérez García has requested that the Comptroller of the country carry out a special examination of Contract 2016063 signed between EP Petroecuador and the private company Gasvesubio Export (owned by the Eljuri group), on January 28, 2016.

The formal request was made on August 21, 2018 and the Comptroller responded on September 18, 2018 stating the request had been sent to the National Directorate of Natural Resources Audit, reported online media El Universo.

The audit request comes after Petroamazonas EP Manager Álex Galárraga announced Ecuador’s plans to import gas from Peru due to the lack of reserves at the Amistad field to cover demand for at least three potential customers: TermoMachala (63 million cubic feet of natural gas), Bajo Alto (12 million) and Gasvesubio (14 million).
