Camisea gas pipeline

Camisea gas pipeline

Exploitation: The project begins in the area known as Camisea, in the Cusco jungle region, where the hydrocarbons are extracted to be processed in the Malvinas Separation Plant. In this plant, water and impurities are removed and in addition the dry natural gas (methane and ethane) is removed from the known natural gas liquids (NGL).

Transport: Both separated products begin their journey through a pipeline transport system – consisting in a pipeline for dry natural gas and other pipeline for natural gas liquids – until reaching the coast.

Natural Gas bound to domestic consumption is brought until Lima and Ica, where it can be used for residential, commercial, industrial, or vehicle fuel ends; as well as to electricity generation, the same that will be afterwards distributed nationwide throughout the existent Peruvian infrastructure.

Natural Gas Liquids are transported until reaching Ica, to the Lobería Fractionating Plant, where after being processed will allow to supply the local GLP markets and other products, besides being an important foreign currency income source when the natural gas liquids derivatives are exported.

Distribution: Finally, once in Lima, Callao and Ica, natural gas is distributed through the existing pipelines to industries, residencies, commerce’s, selling GNV establishments, and electricity generator plants.
