Ecuador: Natural Resources and Energy
Country Study > Chapter 3 > The Economy > Natural Resources and Energy

NATURAL RESOURCES AND ENERGY


The natural resource sector of the Ecuadorian economy contributed almost 15 percent to the GDP in 1986, with the petroleum industry providing virtually all of that total. Although analysts believed that Ecuador had numerous mineral deposits, few metals had been exploited. Hydroelectric power from several large dams provided the primary source of energy.
