Pluspetrol submitted the semi-detailed EIS for the US$60mn 15-month project in January 2014.

Approval does not constitute the granting of other authorizations or permits the company must secure, according to a resolution from the energy and mines ministry's (MEM) energy environmental affairs office.

In Peru, Pluspetrol also holds blocks 8 and 88, the country's principal gas producing areas, and exploration block 108.
