Camisea begins work on fractionation plant

OGJ Correspondent

LIMA, June 9 -- Argentine's Pluspetrol Peru, operator in the development of the Camisea natural gas project on the eastern slopes of the Andes, 500 km east of Lima, announced work has begun on leveling the grounds in Pisco on the south coast for the construction of the project's 50,000 b/d liquids fractionation plant.

The plant is scheduled for operation by June 2004, according to Pluspetrol Peru General Manager Norberto Benito.

Work on the offshore installations, including an underwater pipeline and cargo terminal, remain on hold for a final approval on the environmental impact assessment of the offshore zone on which the Camisea consortium is working with authorities.

Benito said the fourth Camisea development well in San Martin field had been drilled down to 2,800 m of a TD of 3,580 m and is due to be completed shortly. A fifth well will be drilled to reinject dry gas.

The Camisea upstream consortium includes Argentine's Pluspetrol, Hunt Oil Co., South Korea's SK Corp., and Argentine's Hidrocarburos Andinos.
