In recent days, the energy crisis caused by the incompetence of the Government, which decided to suspend works in the Néstor Kirchner Gas Pipeline and reduce the import of gas, forced the cutoff of supply at CNG stations and different industries that had to paralyze their activity.

“The Honorable Chamber of Deputies of Nacía resolves to urgently summon the Secretary of Energy, Mr. Eduardo Javier Rodríguez Chirillo, in order to provide explanations regarding the worrying situation of natural gas shortage in the country that puts numerous sectors in crisis”, says the project presented by representative Marcela Inés Cole.

The initiative bears the signatures of Carla Carrizo, Natalia Sarapura, Jorge Rizzotti, Lisandro Nieri, Francisco Monti, Pedro Galimberti, Marcela Antola, Manuel Aguirre and Danya Tavela.

The unusual justification of the Government for the lack of gas

Presidential spokesperson Manuel Adorni assured that if the last few weeks had not been so cold there would be no shortage of CNG. Furthermore, he said that They are making efforts to ensure that there are no shortages during the winter.

The presidential spokesperson reported that the unloading of gas from a vessel belonging to the Brazilian company Petrobras began at 9 in the morning. Therefore, they anticipated that the service and distribution could be normalized by early evening.

When asked by a journalist about the Government’s lack of foresight and the causes that generated this situation: whether it was due to the anticipated cold weather or whether there was a problem with the letter of credit they issued: “Indeed there was a problem with the letter of credit credit, on Friday we issued the payment and indeed there was a rejection by the company. An issue that ended up being resolved and that is why today at nine in the morning the unloading of the fuel began,” he explained.

That’s not all, but Adorni also remarked that “We are in the harshest winter of the last 44 years“so” consumption increased by 55%, went from 44 million cubic meters to approximately 70 million cubic meters“.
