Pluspetrol began its activities in Peru in 1994 and it is currently the country’s largest oil and gas producer. Its strategic presence has spurred change in the country's energy matrix, promoting its development and growth for both domestic and industrial use and for transportation.
Through sustained investment, Peru has gained great momentum and is now going through a development process that distinguishes it at a regional level. At present, Pluspetrol is a key player thanks to the activities it has cemented there and the contributions it makes in the form of royalties.
The company works in the Camisea consortium and has exploratory operations and projects in the regions of Junin and Pasco and in the Department of Loreto.
Camisea is the most important gas mega-field in Latin America. Operated by Pluspetrol, it is an international icon and model.
Camisea is an exemplary display of engineering, logistics development and infrastructure. The offshore-inland method is applied, which means the use of heliportable operations without making roads. Pluspetrol carries out the Camisea upstream component, producing natural gas in Blocks 88 and 56. And it does so in a consortium, in association with Hunt Oil, SK Innovation, Tecpetrol, Repsol and Sonatrach. The logistical complexity, requiring the replication of sea production techniques inland, is a benchmark given the complex social and environmental setting in which it is carried out. The project is an example of how Pluspetrol works to achieve operational excellence and expand the business to other parts of the world.

In this region, Pluspetrol generates the highest production rate of heavy oil in Peru.
Pluspetrol specializes in the rehabilitation of mature fields, complex logistics and upstream treatment. Here it applies its knowledge and optimized processes to the extraction of heavy oil. The activities constitute a challenge due to the remote location of the sites, which can only be reached by air or river. Pluspetrol Norte’s operations have a strong impact on the country's energy resources.

This project located in the middle of the jungle is both a sign of commitment to Peru's energy future and a challenge for Pluspetrol.
Located in the central Peruvian jungle, Block 108 is operated by Pluspetrol, which carries out exploratory work using 2D seismic surveys. The main aim is to find new sources of light crude oil that will contribute to the Peruvian economy in the future. Each activity is carried out to highest environmental and social standards, similar to those used in Camisea, which are already an international benchmark in the industry.
This methodology is accompanied by permanent monitoring by native communities and national authorities. Together with them, Pluspetrol is committed to preserving the environment as well as the local culture and heritage.
