Ecuador crude pipelines brace for further erosion-Argus Media


State-owned PetroEcuador restarted the 360,000 b/d Sote crude pipeline today after completing a second bypass.

Heavy rains ruptured the line in early April and caused erosion around a series of rivers in San Rafael on the border between Napo and Sucumbios provinces.

The two bypasses, one of 380m (1,247 feet) near the Marker river and another of 690m near the Montana river, preserve the integrity of the 503km (313mi) Sote pipeline by shifting 200m-400m away from the erosion, PetroEcuador chief executive Pablo Flores said.

The company halted operations on the pipeline on 3 June as a precaution in the face of rapid mudslides in the rain-soaked region.
