Pacayacu, Ecuador

Staff from Petroamazonas, an Ecuadorian oil company, clean the waste pool located at the Secoya 16 Field. The workers are people from the surrounding communities who work full days in direct contact with the crude oil and contamination. The cleanup of these environmental liabilities takes several years, affecting the productivity of the land, and killing livestock which drink the contaminated water. Many farmers have abandoned their fields around the oil field.
