Peru postpones award of $2.5 bln natgas pipeline concession

LIMA, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Peru has pushed back the date it will announce the winner of the rights to build a $2.5 billion natural gas pipeline to June 30 from Feb. 17, a government website showed on Thursday.

The concession date has been changed twice since initially being scheduled for Oct. 7 of last year.

The pipeline is crucial to President Ollanta Humala’s plans to use the country’s natural gas reserves to develop a petrochemical complex in Peru’s poor southern regions.

The change in the date appeared on the website of government investment agency Proinversion. The agency has said Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht submitted a bid as well as several other unnamed companies. (Reporting By Patricia Velez; Writing by Mitra Taj; Editing by Kevin Gray)
