Sempra steps back from $6.5 billion project in Peru
"Negotiations have terminated without an agreement. Despite significant efforts, the Peruvian government expressed its inability to provide necessary assurances that the concession would not be cancelled due to alleged legal violations by the seller or its affiliates.
"As a consequence, a fundamental condition that was required for us to consider entering into final and binding agreement was not satisfied."
