    According to Chevron at any rate, they ceased operations in Ecuador in 1992, performed various remediation activities that the government required, then later signed a release with the Ecuadoran government in 1998.  Since they left Ecuador in 1992 there wouldn't appear to be any dumping by Chevron after that date.

    •  Good link. I wonder what Ecuador's response to (0+ / 0-)

      the Chevron statement is.  The way Chevron states it, Ecuador is trying to get them to pay for spills created after they left.  And, they haven't operated in Ecuador for almost 22 years...???
