    In the western Amazon at least, about 90 years, since the 1920s. Oil exploration in the region began in Peru, and the practice really kicked into gear during the 1970s. Now, about 688,000 square km of the western Amazon is covered by oil and gas blocks, including 2/3 of the Amazon regions in Peru and Ecuador.
