EPC of the Chiquintirca Compression Plant Expansion

The objective was to expand the transport capacity to 380 MMPCD

Project description:

The project is part of the expansion of the gas transportation capacity of the Camisea Project.

Located in the district of Anco, province of La Mar, Ayacucho. The objective was to expand the transportation capacity to 380 MMCFD in the first stage, and up to 1,104 MMCFD in its second stage, to supply the main pipeline of the Natural Gas Liquefaction project, Pampa Melchorita, of Peru LNG.

In addition, a change was made to the existing pipeline (900 meters at the entrance of the Plant and 1,100 meters at the exit) so that the project complies with the technical standards of design and safety.
