Tipiel S.A., Technip’s subsidiary in Colombia, was awarded by the Consorcio Constructor Ductos del Sur, a front-end engineering design and detailed engineering design contract, on a lump sum basis. This covers the development of a new gas pipeline to transport gas from the Camisea field to Southern Peru.
Launched by the Peruvian government, the project consists of more than 1700 km of 32 in. gas pipeline. It aims to improve the existing Peruvian Energy Network, contributing to the development of an Energy Node and Petrochemical Hub in Southern Peru.
The overall work will be performed by Tipiel’s offices in Bogota, Colombia.
Marco Villa, Technip’s Region B President, commented: “This award reflects the importance to accompany the client since the very early stage of an initiative to help design an optimised project execution scheme.”
Riccardo Nicoletti, Tipiel General Manager, stated: "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”.
