The Minister of Energy and Mines, Oscar Vera Gargurevich, announced the reactivation of the construction project of the Gasoducto del Sur to supply natural gas to all the southern regions of the country, which will include investments to boost the petrochemical industry and the construction of a fertilizer plant.

Likewise, he confirmed that the Ministry of Energy and Mines (MINEM) is working on the reactivation of the project to supply natural gas to the regions of Puno, Cusco, Apurímac, Ayacucho, Junín, Huancavelica and Ucayali, and that the sector has a budget 800 million to allow 114,000 families to have energy at a lower cost for domestic use and economic activities.

He added that the government has transferred S/ 491 million to MINEM to increase the mass use of natural gas and build more than 1,000 kilometers of distribution networks in Lima, Ica, Piura Áncash, La Libertad, Lambayeque, Cajamarca, Arequipa, Tacna and Moquegua, with the goal of reaching 100 thousand families through the BonoGas program.
