Copper mining in Peru: Forecasts and expectations

Peru has ambitious plans for mining, especially regarding copper. The country's energy and mines ministry (MEM) estimates that production of the metal will reach a total 4.66 million tonnes (Mt) in 2014, almost four times the 1.23Mt that Peruvian mines churned out in 2011. Propping up these healthy projections is a well-stocked portfolio of copper projects involving investments of US$35 billion that include both new operations and expansions of existing facilities, and which involve investments of some US$35.43 billion, according to MEM figures as of September this year. Nevertheless, the optimistic projections of authorities are not being fulfilled. In this report we examine the outlook for Peruvian copper production and review the projects with the best perspectives and those facing difficulties, as well as their impact on copper output.

Shale resources in Latin America

Latin America as a whole could hold 1,900 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable shale gas resources, approximately 30% of the world's total, and it has numerous liquid-prone basins. Around 90% of the region's shale gas and an overwhelming majority of its share oil is concentrated in three countries: Argentina, Mexico and Brazil. Besides these three nations, Colombia has also been very keen on developing its shale potential. Much of the future of shale development will depend on the delicate balance between below-ground potential and above-ground risk.

All eyes on Colombia

In much of Latin America the telecoms industry still talks about LTE as something that the general public will become aware of during 2013, not necessarily by name, but certainly in terms of campaigns advertising ultra-fast mobile broadband. However, the concept is already mainstream in Colombia, helped by intense political discussion about the forthcoming sale of additional 4G spectrum. This report reviews the positive decisions taken in recent years and evaluates the potential for Colombia to build on the progress made as a result.

Large hydroelectric plants seeking sustainability

The stiff challenge facing Latin America to ensure power supply in the coming years, amid increasing social pressure against power generation from fossil fuels, is turning attention back to hydropower projects. Constructors are increasingly choosing run-of-river plants that require smaller reservoirs in order to obtain environmental permits. However, the spread of run-of-river plants has sparked debate between specialists that support these projects because of their lesser impacts and those who think that the most vulnerable countries in terms of energy security shouldn't be building such plants.
