Terms of Reference Posted for Pipeline Audit

OSINERG, the regulatory agency within Peru's Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM) has released the terms of reference for the technical audit of the Camisea pipeline. Comments are being accepted.

El Comercio reports today that within a month a company will be selected to carry out the audit. A technical group will be formed to choose the contractor which will be comprised of MEM, OSINERG (also part of MEM) and one independent representative.

In same article, OSINERG suggests that TGP might respond later this week concerning payment of the more than US$ 900,000 levied against them for previous spills and erosion during pipeline construction.
