Petroperu is advancing construction work at its Ninacaca supply plant in Peru to meet growing demand for liquid fuels.
Construction work is well underway by the OBS-IMECON consortium, the contractor for the project, at the facility in the Pasco region. This includes the development of detailed engineering, earthworks and excavation.
Once this phase is complete, work will start on building crude storage tanks comprising 7,500 barrels for three fuel types: diesel B5, gasoline 90 octane and 84 octane. This facility will address current demand for liquid fuels mainly in the central region of Peru.
Additionally, the facility will have water storage for its firefighting system.
The state-owned company says that the plant will help with the development of the central region of the country, including Junín and Huánuco.
