Southern Peruvian Gas Pipeline

Southern Peruvian Gas Pipeline

The Ductos del Sur construction consortium awarded Elecnor the engineering and construction contract for one of the sections of Peru's Southern Gas Pipeline. This section runs between kilometres 240 and 348 in the Andes mountains. 

The GSP project was awarded by the Peruvian government on 30 June 2014. It includes the design, financing, construction, operation and maintenance of the new pipeline. The GSP will cover a total of 1,134 kilometres and is divided into three sections of pipe diameter: 32, 24 and 14 inches. The 108 kilometres awarded to Elecnor are 32-inch.

The new infrastructure, which will cost around USD 4 billion, will connect Camisea in the Cusco region, and the coastal town of Ilo in the Moquegua region, where a petrochemical facility will be built. In addition to Cusco and Moquegua, the pipeline will cross two other regions featuring jungle, mountains and coastline-Puno and Arequipa.
