Abstract

Purpose This book chapter examines the social and environmental
costs resulting from natural gas exploitation in the Peruvian Amazon
basin with a special focus on the case of the ‘Camisea Natural Gas
Project Block 88’ in the Peruvian Amazon basin.

Methodology/approach This research drew from a comprehensive
source of secondary literature data on the Camisea Project Block 88,
complemented by an ethnographic research approach based upon observation,
conversation and semi-structure interviews with native community
members of the indigenous communities of Shivancoreni and Shimmaa in
Cusco-Peru.
