Geocean, an international EPC offshore contractor for the oil and gas, mining and chemical industries, as well as the public works market, has high expectations for Peru amid an uptick of sector prospects, Geocean Chile development manager Rodrigo Flores told BNamericas.

The Santiago office recently won a contract with Repsol to carry out work at the La Pampilla refinery (pictured) in Peru and established an office in Lima.

The contract for the RLP35 Terminal Monoboya T4 project includes installation of monobuoy mooring to load and offload hydrocarbons, and the construction of two 18-inch diameter carbon steel underwater lines which will run 4.2km from the buoy to the refinery.

Other components include a breakwater to protect the piping and cables for fiber optics and electricity. The project is scheduled to be completed in the first semester of 2019.

BNamericas reported previously that the Repsol-controlled company would invest US$88.6mn on the new monobuoy terminal.

Geocean's Peru office will coordinate the project as part of an initial two to three year business strategy and bid on other opportunities, said Flores.
