Ecuador produces about 500,000 barrels of crude oil per day (bpd) from fields in the northern Amazon regions of Sucumbios, Napo and Orellana. The scope of the project consisted of three multiple well islands each with launchers and gathering lines that delivered the well production to Early Processing Facility (EPF). At the EPF the water, gas & oil was sent into pipeline through three automated block valves (MLV) stations that terminated at SF Receiving Facility. The pipeline terminates at a Transfer Station.
