The project cut through Ecuador from an altitude of 300 meters in the Amazon to over 4,000 meters through the Andean ridge and down to sea level. The pipeline traverses seven national parks and protected areas  and is 506 km long.
Oil pipeline was expected to handle 450,000 barrels of crude oil per day, compared to the average national daily extraction of 350,000 barrels. The oil passing through the pipeline is exported to the United States, the Caribbean and Asia.
