Ministry of Energy and Mines Will Announce Pipeline Auditor in July
On July 13, 2006, Peru's MEM will announce the company or consortium that will carry out an independent audit of the Camisea Gas project. The government's audit will examine the design, construction, and materials used in the pipeline's construction and any risks to public security. The audit is being financed by the pipeline consortium, TGP, through an agreement with the Peruvian government. Since the project began operation in August 2004, there have been five accidents, including an explosion in March that left local residents hospitalized.
