Rainforest Action Network - Citigroup Case Studies: OCP Project
The Oleoducto de Crudos Pesados (OCP) is a 298 mile pipeline that will deliver up to 450,000 barrels of heavy crude oil per day from oil reserves in Ecuador's beautiful eastern rainforest to refineries on the Pacific Coast. The project, backed by the OCP Consortium, Ltd., will double Ecuador's oil production capacity, at the expense of the incredibly diverse rainforests that fall in its way.
