Built to Spill

Chip Mitchell has a good article on the project in the Texas Observer. It describes problems with the pipeline and gives some background on Hunt Oil and its ties to the Bush campaign.

“A project of this size can expect to have some challenges,” says Jeanne Phillips, the company’s senior vice president of corporate affairs and international relations, who chaired President Bush’s 2005 inaugural committee.
We’re not worried,” says Phillips, the Hunt vice president. “We’re working with the IDB and many nongovernmental organizations to ensure that the Peru LNG project is very aggressive and progressive on the environmental front as well as the social-responsibility front.”

Not sure which NGO's Phillips is referring to.
