Peruvian re-gasification plant anticipated


Brazil’s state-owned energy major Petrobras is considering new projects in Peru and Uruguay and following the anticipated discovery of a natural gas reserve in Peru, could be set to install a re-gasification plant in the country, according to the inklings of top company officials.

Speaking to reporters, Nestor Cervero, chief of Petrobras’ international operations, indicated the company might team up with Brazilian petrochemicals company Braskem to set up natural gas plant in southern Peru, Spain’s EFE news agency reported recently.
