Camisea exposed


The gas pipes of the gas project-Camisea, have broken 4 times in 15 months, now they have to face 6 more potential ruptures due to a variety of failures in its construction and operation. E-Tech International who has been monitoring the project since 2003 will report today not only the ruptures but also the use of ‘bad quality’ pipes, for following forced slope routes and unexpectedly welding sections. Also, 40% of the pipes were built with parts that were exposed and arrived to Peru, highly corroded.
