Texaco began operating in Ecuador over 30 years ago, when it was given 400,000 hectares to exploit. The company drilled 339 oil wells and left a wake of contamination and incalculable damage. All of this within the stunning setting of the Amazon jungle, where many ethnic groups had lived in harmony since time immemorial. There is a legal process pending against Texaco for damages, in Ecuador and the U.S.
