“The Petroecuador Public Company signed a new contract for the purchase of crude oil, in the medium term, with the State Company Petróleos del Perú – PETROPERÚ SA, to sell directly, a total volume of 3,960,000 barrels of Crude Oriente, in the period January – November 2019”, informed BN Americas.

In addition, the contract will include the delivery scheduled for 11 shipments of 360,000 barrels each, estimated to occur monthly at first.
“These direct sales between state companies represent great benefits for the Ecuadorian State”, BN Americas said.
