ECUADOR LEAVES OPEC
PLATTS - Ecuador will leave OPEC on January 1, the country's Ministry of Energy and Non-Renewable Resources said Tuesday.
"The decision lies in the internal issues and challenges that the country must assume, related to fiscal sustainability," the ministry said in a statement. "This measure is aligned with the National Government's plan to reduce public spending and generate new income."
Ecuador joined OPEC in 1973, but was not a member from 1992 to 2007.
