Petroperu Doubles Diesel Imports to Supply TPPs

Peruvian state-owned oil company Petroperu has doubled diesel imports in order to supply the country's thermoelectric power plants (TPPs) amid gas supply problems, it said on August 14, 2008.

The company raised its diesel imports to 12,000 barrels per day (bpd) from 6,000 bpd on demand by electricity producers Edegel and EnerSur, Petroperu president Cesar Gutierrez said.

The companies sought to use diesel in the place of natural gas due to reduced gas supplies following a congestion of a pipeline which transports natural gas from Peru's Camisea field.
