The Peruvian Hydrocarbons Society (SPH) warned that if the strike of carriers —which began on November 22— and the restrictions on free highway transit continue, the gradual suspension of the natural gas public service will be inevitable. This would affect more than 200,000 families and dozens of industries and CNG refueling stations in Lambayeque, Chiclayo, Trujillo, Pacasmayo, Cajamarca, Chimbote and Huaraz. Along these lines, Felipe Cantuarias, president of the SPH, urged the authorities to dialogue and reach agreements.

“We call on the authorities to find a solution to this road blockade whose effects are beginning to be felt with the restrictions on the normal movement of passengers who make interprovincial trips and the transport of basic necessities. Added to this scenario is the potential risk of suspension of natural gas service in the cities of the north of the country, whose economic consequences would be unfortunate,” Cantuarias said.

For its part, the company Quaviiin charge of the Northern Concession, has requested the Ministry of Energy and Mines (Minem) declare an emergency the supply of natural gas from the distribution system by pipeline network in the North Concession. This until the conditions that allow the transit of the tankers to the coverage area are reestablished.

They also reported that in view of the complicated scenario, contingency plans have been activated to mitigate the possible impacts of natural gas shortages in their coverage area. However, if the blockades continue, the company would be forced to ration the service.
