Yesterday it was found that some taps in metropolitan Lima did not have a stock of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), a fact that represented an alarm since the middle of the week; although from the Ministry of Energy and Mines (Minem) they already put cold cloths on it after assuring that from today the supply of this fuel would be regularized with the arrival of two ships from the Pluspetrol production plant in Ica.
As it is recalled, last Tuesday, two ships from Pisco landed in Lima with an LPG shipment that will serve to supply the city after a serious shortage was registered this week as a result of abnormal waves.
Abel Camasca, general manager of the Association of Gas Bottling Plants of Peru (Aseeg), assured that the dispatch of the Mar Pacífico and Colca vessels will decongest the market in no more than 48 hours. “This will complement storage to regularize service in Lima, which consumes 70% of LPG in Peru,” said Camasca.
The stock problems are explained by the abnormal waves on the coast of Callao, which makes it difficult for boats to arrive.
