Proyecto Dominga de Andes Iron sería ingresado al SEIA en septiembre

Iniciativa minera de Garcés Silva y Délano actualmente estaría ponderando comentarios, sugerencias e inquietudes de las autoridades.

Se esperaba que a fines de este mes Andes Iron presentara a tramitación ambiental el megaproyecto Dominga, pero fuentes del sector confirmaron a ESTRATEGIA que el respectivo Estudio de Impacto Ambiental (EIA) aún no será presentado ante el Servicio de Evaluación e Impacto Ambiental (SEIA), debido a que actualmente autoridades públicas se encuentran dialogando con la empresa para afinar los últimos detalles del proyecto.

De acuerdo a las fuentes, la compañía ligada a los empresarios Carlos Alberto Délano y José Antonio Garcés, está integrando distintas observaciones, comentarios, sugerencias, particularmente de los Seremis, con el fin de consolidar un proyecto robusto que supere sin mayores contratiempos esta etapa. Ahora se espera que el mismo sea ingresado hacia fines de septiembre.

Dominga, ubicada en la Cuarta Región, costará cerca de US$2.500 millones y se transformará en una operación de la gran minería que apunta a producir en torno a 11 millones de toneladas de concentrado de hierro y un promedio de 125.000 toneladas de cobre al año.

  • Peruvian junior Olympic has advanced plans to develop a natural gas to urea plant in the north of Peru. Information from the country's energy and mines ministry reveals the company filed a preliminary evaluation request with the ministry's energy environmental affairs office. The complex would be built at Olympic oil and gas producing block XIII-B in northwest region Tumbes. The 200t/d plant would help reduce imports of urea for agriculture with the idea of covering at least 15-20% of Peru's market, Jorge Manco, an energy expert and research professor at local Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, told BNamericas previously. Block XIII-B gas output this year has averaged 214,581m3/d compared to 172,471m3/d for all of 2013, according to data from state hydrocarbons promotion agency Perúpetro. Olympic also holds an exploration license for block 145 in northeast region Amazonas. BNamericas will host its second LatAm Oil & Gas Summit in Houston, Texas, on September 10-11.

  • Public-private partnerships have spread in recent years in Latin America's jail system, although questions over efficiency persist, according to BNamericas' latest Intelligence Series. While most prisons remain under state control in the region, Chile, Mexico, Brazil and Peru have used outsourcing in an attempt to improve the management of overcrowded prison systems. Chile, the pioneer, has awarded eight facilities under this system since 2000, while Peru has begun a pilot project and Mexico has opened three jails under PPPs. Several Brazilian states also awarded public-private contracts to build new jails. However, questions over concessions' efficiency in the sector remain and Chile has said it will build two planned jails with exclusively public funds as a result.

  • Brazil's drought prevention department DNOCS has awarded a 171mn-real (US$76.8mn) contract to build a dam to a local consortium made up of Galvão Engenharia and EIT Construções, according to a department release. The initiative, prepared in June, involves building the Fronteiras dam in Ceará state's Crateús city. A construction permit should be granted by August 10, after which a service order will be signed authorizing the start of civil works, the release said. The project includes a 488Mm3 reservoir in the Poty river basin and facilities to irrigate at least 5,000ha. Complementary works will include deep well drilling, as well as ramping up pre-drilled wells that lack pumps and electric power. The job also calls for expropriation and relocation work, according to the release. The initiative is being carried out due to the water supply shortage in the region, which has seriously impacted rural areas. Approximately 100,000 residents should benefit, DNOCS said.
