This is my first entry on this Blog tracking the Camisea Gas Project in Peru.
Camisea is Peru's largest hydrocarbon project, an effort to pump and pipe 11 trillion cubic feet of natural gas from the Amazon to the Coast. It is also an extremely destructive project that has brought environmental devastation and disease to indigenous peoples in the Amazon, some of which have had little or no contact with the outside world.
I have been following the Camisea project since 1996 when I worked in the region with the Peruvian NGO, CEDIA and the local indigenous organization, COMARU.
I plan to use this Blog to post news, reports, and other observations about the project. I look forward to your comments as well.
