Calidda set to begin Huachipa gas supply works

Peruvian gas distributor Cálidda aims to begin construction next month of a project to supply industries in the Huachipa area outside Lima, company general manager Ernesto Córdova said.

"We're closing contracts for the purchase of materials and the contractors," state news agency Andina quoted Córdova as saying.

Construction of the project's 16km pipeline will take 11 months, with first gas due in the first half of next year, he said.

The gas will supply 10 large companies including brewer Ambev, beverage company Ajeper, dairy products firm Gloria and textile company Creditex.

Cálidda is also looking at potential clients in Chaclacayo, the executive said.

Houston-based AEI and Colombian natural gas provider Promigas control Cálidda, which serves Lima and neighboring port city Callao. The distributor aims to be supplying 274 industrial firms compared to the current 210 by year-end.
