Vast revenues that never return as production areas are traditionally the poorest. This is is Petro Sote pipeline that runs to the SOTE pipeline and takes light crude to the Pacific Ocean. The sote pipeline was completed in 1972 by Texaco and reverted to state ownership in 1992. There have been over 60 accidents resulting in more than 18.000 million gallons of crude spilling into the environment, much of which is in the Upper Amazon and affects the entire Amazon basin.
