In a speech at the plant built in that territory, 1,130 kilometers from Lima, the president underscored the importance for the oil industry of the modern facility, whose construction began in 2014 and was halted during the long lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

He pointed out that this achievement, attained over the course of several administrations, raises the need for political unity to obtain more similar results.

He added that these are difficult times, with a world energy crisis and rising fuel prices, which affect the economy of all countries and make it indispensable to recover sovereignty over natural resources, and this work is a concrete step to achieve that.

Castillo recalled that in October 1969, the army occupied the facilities of the US International Petroleum Company in Talara, after the nationalist military administration of General Juan Velasco Alvarado had nationalized this resource, and consecrated the date as National Dignity Day.

He added that his administration seeks to recover the energy resources to promote the industry for the people’s benefit and through the state-owned company Petroperu, which built the refinery with its own resources.
