Statement Responding to the Government of Ecuador's Offer to Mediate in Ongoing Trial

On August 9th, Ecuador's President Rafael Correa offered to facilitate settlement discussions between Chevron and the Amazon Defense Coalition in order to resolve the ongoing civil lawsuit underway in Ecuador... In response, Chevron issued the following statement: "Chevron desires to have a fair and complete resolution to the Lago Agrio case. In 2004, we requested that Petroecuador engage in arbitration. The Republic of Ecuador and Petroecuador have sued Chevron to prevent such a conversation. Chevron remains open to an amicable solution, but such a dialogue would need to include discussion of Petroecuador's unfulfilled contractual obligations and a commitment from the Ecuadorian state to stop interfering in the ongoing trial."
