Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

Gas Natural de Lima y Callao, S.A. (“Cálidda” or “The Company”) is the sole concessionaire for the pipeline distribution of natural gas in the Department of Lima and the Constitutional Province of Callao. Its main shareholder is Grupo de Energía de Bogotá (“GEB”), a business leader in the energy sector with operations in Colombia, Brazil, Peru, and Guatemala. The operation consists of an unsecured corporate loan for up to US$100 million (one hundred million United States dollars) with an 8-year repayment period. The funds will finance the expansion of the Natural Gas Distribution System (“NGDS”) in 2020–2021 (the “Project”) in order to reach more users, mainly households and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Se requerira que la Empresa asegure que el Proyecto cumpla con los requisitos de la Politica de Sostenibilidad de BID Invest y que cierre cualquier brecha identificada, a traves de un Plan de Accion Ambiental y Social ("PAAS").
