Operator of Pipeline from Peruís Camisea Begins to Fix Leak

LIMA Ė The operator of the natural gas liquids pipeline running from the massive Camisea gas field in the southern Peruvian region of Cuzco said it had begun fixing a leak that forced the conduit to be shut down earlier this week.

The repair work was focused on a section of the pipeline located in La Convencion province, where the flow of fuel through the conduit was halted at 4:40 a.m. Tuesday, Transportadora de Gas del Peru said in a statement Thursday.

TGP said Wednesday that it had implemented a safety and environmental control plan that consisted of demarcating the area where the incident occurred and setting up an incident control point.

To comply with the repair operationís technical and work-safety requirements, machinery and equipment must be brought to the area by plane.

TGP technicians are working at the site of the accident along with representatives of the Energy and Mining Investment Supervisory Body, or Osinergmin, and the Environmental Assessment Directorate, or OEFA, while Peruvian army soldiers are providing security.

TGPís pipeline transports natural gas liquids that are processed to produce liquefied petroleum gas, which is used as a cooking fuel in homes and to power automobiles.
