Adventure Across Bolivia and Brazil
It seems like yesterday that I took a leap of faith and made the trip to Brazil to work as an environmental consultant on the San Miguel, Bolivia to Cuiabá, Brazil Pipeline project. The project was being criticized in the USA by major NGOs for cutting through the near primary and very remote Chiquitano Forest of Eastern Bolivia. The turnkey contractor, Enron Engineering & Construction Company, had been pressured by its financiers into hiring environmental personnel to assure the implementation, by its subcontractors, of the environmental and social management plan for the project. This was a worthy challenge and suitable adventure, so I jumped at the chance to head south to work on my first major international project. Thus, this semi-fictional account draws on my experience in South America working as the turnkey contractor’s environmental manager, on this very high-profile pipeline construction project.
