Technip’s Colombian subsidiary, Tipiel, has been awarded a front-end engineering design and detailed engineering design contract on a lump-sum basis.
The deal, which was awarded by the Consorcio Constructor Ductos del Sur, is for the development of a new gas pipeline to transport gas from the Camisea field to Southern Peru.
The project was launched by the Peruvian government and consists of more than 1,700 kilometres of 32″ gas pipeline.
It aims to improve the existing Peruvian Energy Network and help contribute to the development of an Energy Node and Petrochemical Hub in Southern Peru.
Riccardo Nicoletti, Tipiel general manager, said: “This contract, which is related to one of the most important projects for the development of energy infrastructure in Peru, serves our objective to make Tipiel a leading engineering company outside Colombia as well”.
The overall work will be performed by Tipiel’s offices in Bogota, Colombia.
