The Ica natural gas distribution project includes the 220km Humay-Marcona line that will supply the cities of Ica, Nasca and San Juan de Marcona, as well as miner Minera Shougang and CFI Industries' petrochemical plant. The project also includes the 37.6km Humay-Pisco line to supply the city of Pisco and its industrial area. The entire system is due to take roughly two years to complete. Congas - now Contugas - picked up the 30-year concession in 2008 to design, build, operate and maintain the system, which will transport Camisea gas. Construction began in 2010, and in 2012 the residential component of the system was introduced, which aims for 50,000 connections within three years. Construction is expected to finish in 2013.
