In this sense, the company reported that in 2023 works were carried out that allowed changing the configuration of the Tío Pujio and Leones compressor plants, thus modifying the direction of a section of the Northern Gas Pipeline (between the south of Santa Fe and the center of the province of Córdoba) to increase the transport capacity of the fluid by 40% and achieve supply to industries, power generation plants and homes in that region.

Likewise, to ensure the provision of the natural gas transportation service, the Integrity Management Program (PGI) carried out coating replacements and hydraulic tests on pipes in addition to retrofitting works at river crossings such as the Vipos (Tucumán) and the Lavayén ( Jujuy) and in the Balbuena stream (Salta). As a complement, its Damage Prevention Plan generated almost 1,000 door-to-door visits nationwide, responded to more than 250 interference requests and provided workshops and talks to 120 entities.

At the social level, actions were carried out in 17 provinces, which reached 90 municipal or departmental localities.
