LIMA�As sole bidder, a consortium led by Tecgas NV, a subsidiary of Techint SA, Argentina, won the concession for transport and distribution of Camisea gas and liquids 8 months after a consortium led by Pluspetrol Resources Corp., Argentina, was awarded the contract for exploitation of those natural gas fields.

The transport and distribution contract tender had been put off several times previously (OGJ Online, Sept. 18, 2000). More than one bid had been expected.

The Techgas consortium bid $1.449 billion for the concession, $2 million less than the maximum $1.451 billion value set by the Camisea committee.

Spain's Gas Natural Group has pulled out of the consortium, which is now composed of Techgas; Pluspetrol Resources Corp.; Hunt Oil Co.; SK Corp. of South Korea; Enterprise Oil PLC; Sonatrach; and Gra�a y Montero SA of Peru.
