Over 4,000 Businesses Using Natural Gas in Peru’s Capital

LIMA – More than 4,000 businesses in Lima and Callao are using natural gas from the Camisea field in southern Peru, said gas distribution company Calidda’s general manager, Adolfo Heeren.

“The market is big and we continue expanding, we’ve been growing at a rate of more than 60 percent annually in recent years,” Heeren told the official Andina news agency.

The Lima market is big and the company’s goal is to reach more businesses, “which total more than 10,000” in the capital, Heeren said.

Calidda wants to exceed 500,000 residential hook-ups in two years and reach 1 million by 2020, Heeren said.

The gas distribution company expects to expand into Cañete, a province south of the Lima region, after focusing on the Lima metropolitan area and the port of Callao in recent years, the executive said.

Calidda received a 33-year renewable franchise from the government to design, build and operate a natural gas distribution system in the Lima region and Callao province.

Calidda’s main shareholder is Bogota-based Grupo Energia, a company with operations in Colombia, Peru and Guatemala.
