Peru's oil production is fraught with danger (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

perilous

Here is my best explanation:

'fraught with danger' is the definition.

(seen before)

'peru's oil production' is the subsidiary indication.

'production' indicates anagramming the letters.

'perus'+'oil'='perusoil'

'perusoil' is an anagram of 'perilous'.

'is' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Irish Times

(Other definitions for perilous that I've seen before include "Dangerous", "Full of danger", "Fraught with danger", "Hazardous, dangerous", "Extremely dangerous", "Hazardous, menacing" and "Risky".)
