Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/11/2014 -- BMI View: We maintain our construction industry growth forecast for Ecuador at 6.1% for 2014 following the official announcement of 8.6% growth for 2013 , in line with our estimate for the year. We expect this decelerating trend to continue over the medium term, as we forecast average annual growth of 3.5% between 2015 and 2019, which is much lower than the double-digit growth seen in recent years. We believe a drop-off in government spending as a result of weakening oil revenue is likely to put the brakes on infrastructure investment. This is exacerbated by Ecuador's persistently weak business environment and prohibitive financing conditions which continue to isolate the sector from private investment.

Africa Logistics, Peru's Cosmos Agencia Mar?tima and the Neltume Marglobal consortium, comprising Ultramar Agencia Mar?tima Chile and Ecuador's Marglobal, have been invited to submit technical and economic bids for Ecuador's USD951mn Manta port concession. The 37-year concession contract will involve expansion of Manta into a deepwater port, with a 16.2m draft and a minimum capacity of 9Mt, by 2051. The three teams have to submit their technical and economic proposals by June 23.
- In the oil and gas sector, Ecuador has taken the first step to developing the controversial Ishpingo-Tambococha-Tiputini block by approving drilling on the 850mn barrel area which represents a considerable upside to our forecast. Production estimates for the field range up to 200,000b/d,...
