-- PlusPetrol Peru Corp. SA let a $32 million contract to GE Oil & Gas to supply compression and reinjection upgrade equipment to boost output of the Malvinas NGL processing plant, 400 km from Lima at the southern section of the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. The plant currently has a capacity of 450 MMcfd of gas and throughput of 220 MMcfd.
