Peru ignores UN and pushes ahead with deadly gas project

Peru’s government is on the brink of approving the expansion of the highly controversial Camisea gas project into the land of uncontacted and isolated tribes – ignoring a recent UN recommendation to first carry out ‘extensive studies’ over the threats posed to the vulnerable Indians.

Peru’s Ministry of Culture has approved a plan to expand the $1.6 billion Camisea project – run by Argentina’s Pluspetrol, US’s Hunt Oil and Spain’s Repsol – once three minor conditions are met, raising fears that expansion is imminent. read more

Oil and Gas in the Crosshairs

By Jeff Moore, Muir Analytics

Energy companies are increasingly conducting up and downstream business in areas where they wouldn’t have gone 10 years ago – low intensity conflict zones (LICs), to be specific. The lure of profits is too great. But the physical, financial, and PR risks can be high. As Steve Coll’s recent book, Private Empire, points out, energy companies such as ExxonMobil have an increasingly critical need for threat intelligence and security not only to protect their people and assets in LICs, but also to make sound business decisions on where and where not to drill and refine. read more

Malvinas, Peru – When Peru Camisea natural gas reserves arrive in Lima on Friday the economic boon they promise will come at a high price, the fear of extinction among the remote jungle tribes along the pipeline corridor.

Two decades after they were discovered, the Camisea reserves are expected to bring in about $8-billion in royalties for the government over a 40-year lifetime, generate billions of dollars in gas exports and slash Peru’s $700-million a year dependence on hydrocarbon imports. read more

‘Inside job’ as Peru eyes gas in uncontacted tribes’ land

In the early 1980s, Shell workers opened up paths into the uncontacted Nahua Indians’ land. Diseases soon wiped out half the tribe.

Secret plans reveal Peru is actively pursuing new gas reserves inside protected tribal land, a flagrant violation of laws that prevent such projects.

The Nahua-Nanti Reserve in southeast Peru is known for its uncontacted Amazon tribes, but more controversially, for a wide stretch of gas fields called the Camisea project.

Only last month, despite 75% of one gas block already dominating the reserve, Peru’s Ministry of Mines and Energy gave the Camisea consortium the green light for more gas exploration. read more

Painkillers and pens used to placate Peru’s Indians as gas giants move in

Isolated Indians in southeast Peru are being ‘bribed’ with painkillers and pens, as industry giants seek to open up their land to explore for gas.

Survival has learned that even members of INDEPA – the government agency set up to protect Peru’s tribes – have put pressure on communities so research can be carried out in the reserve where they live.

Workers from Argentine gas giant Pluspetrol have been into the Kugapakori-Nahua Reserve to conduct environmental tests on the land’s suitability. The reserve was created in 1990 to protect the territorial rights of vulnerable tribes. read more

Peru’s ‘final attempt’ to stamp out uncontacted tribes: 18 July 2011

Peru’s Indian Affairs Department has revealed plans to open up uncontacted tribes’ reserves to oil companies – just days before the country’s new government takes office.

New laws would allow the state to grant oil and gas companies open access to the reserves, despite the extreme risk this would pose to the Indians’ lives.

The proposal has generated a wave of criticism from indigenous organizations.

Around 15 tribes have chosen to resist contact in the Peruvian Amazon; all face extinction if their lands are opened up. read more

In the wake of Shell “lies corruption, despoliation and death”: Andrew Rowell in his remarkable article “Unloveable Shell, the Goddess of Oil”

In view of the overnight news from Nigeria it seems an appropriate time to publish for the first time on the Internet the most dramatic masterpiece about Shell and its atrocious track record, especially in Nigeria, that we have ever seen. Authored by Andrew Rowell, it was published by The Guardian over 10 years ago on 15 November 1997 under the title: Unloveable Shell, the Goddess of Oil.

Shell sells fuel business in Peru

Financial Times: Shell sells fuel business in Peru

By James Boxell

Published: August 18 2004 05:00 | Last updated: August 18 2004 05:00

Royal Dutch/Shell has continued its cull of underperforming assets with the sale of its fuels business in Peru to Chile’s Empresa Nacional del Petroleo (ENAP).

Shell did not disclose the value of the sale.

The Anglo/Dutch oil group said last month that it would sell non-core assets in the US and Peru, a move that would allow it to direct investment towards key countries such as Russia.

It has recently completed $1bn (£543m) of US pipeline and storage disposals, and is getting rid of its oil products businesses in Portugal and Spain. read more

BBC NEWS: Peru prepares for the gas age

BBC NEWS: Peru prepares for the gas age

“Shell first had the contract to develop the fields, but left the project after a row with Peru’s former president, Alberto Fujimori.”

By Hannah Hennessy

BBC reporter in Lima, Peru

Posted 10 August 04

Something good is arriving. That is the slogan marking the launch of Camisea, the most ambitious energy project in Peruvian history.

For the economy of the cash poor but resource rich South American nation, the slogan could not be more apt.

But it has been a long and contentious journey.

More than twenty years after natural gas was discovered deep in the Amazon jungle, Peru’s President Alejandro Toledo has inaugurated a $1.6bn project to pipe it across the Andes and up the Pacific coast to Lima. read more
