LPG Shipments Resume in Southern Peru

LIMA – Shipments of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) from the Camisea field in the southern Peruvian region of Cuzco have resumed “in a gradual way” to the coast, Transportadora de Gas del Peru, or TGP, said Tuesday.

The flow of LPG resumed on Monday, TPG said in a statement.

After a leak in the pipeline on Jan. 19 in La Convencion, a town in Cuzco, “access to the area was facilitated for the authorities with jurisdiction” in the case, as well as for the media and leaders of indigenous communities, TPG said.

The liquids pipeline affected by the leak carries the fuel used to produce LPG, which is used by households and vehicles equipped to burn the fuel.

“In addition, we continue informing local and regional authorities,” TPG said, adding that it was continuing to work with government representatives and the army, which is responsible for “security in the area.”

The emergency plan was implemented as soon as the leak, whose cause has not been determined, was detected, the company said, adding that the pipeline that carries natural gas continued operating normally.

The OSINERGMIN energy and mining oversight agency said a day after the leak was detected that Peru’s LPG reserves were sufficient to meet domestic demand while the pipeline was repaired.
