Enagás has reached an agreement to acquire 3.94% of Transportadora de Gas del Perú (TgP) from SK Innovation CO, LTD and 0.40% from Corporación Financiera de Inversiones (CFI), for a total amount of US$97 million.
Following this transaction Enagás will become TgP's second largest shareholder with a 24.34% stake.
TgP, which commenced commercial operations in 2004, transports most of Peru's natural gas and condensates. It has a 729-km gas pipeline which connects the Camisea gas fields with the Lurín city gate, and a 557-km polyduct which carries natural gas liquids from the Camisea gas fields to the Pisco fractioning plant.
TgP is also currently investing in gas projects in Peru which are already being developed so as to increase its natural gas transmission capacity.
Enagás has been present in Peru since 2014 when it acquired a 20% stake in TgP and 30% of Compañía Operadora de Gas del Amazonas (Coga), the company which operates and maintains TgP's transmission system.
