Algeria’s state oil company Sonatrach will decide within a month whether to participate in the construction of a pipeline to transport gas from Peru’s Camisea project to the south of the country, state oil company Petroperú president Cesar Gutierrez said.

Sonatrach has requested preliminary information about the pipeline’s characteristics and required investment, government paper El Peruano quoted Gutierrez as saying.

Gas demand in the south of Peru reaches 210Mf3/d (5.95Mm3/d), the report said.

One option is the construction of a US$800mn, 170km pipeline from Pluspetrol’s plant in Pisco in Ica department to Ilo in Moquegua department.

The other option entails a 900km pipeline from Camisea’s block 88 that would run through Cuzco and Puno regions to Moquegua at a cost of more than US$1bn.
