Vaca Muerta: when will a key work to bring gas to the north of the country be ready

The reversal of the Northern Gasduct, a strategic work to bring gas to the north of the country from Dead cowwill be completed by next September according to official and private sources.

It has a loan of USD 540 million from the formerly called CAF, which is committed to the energy transition and has already approved more than USD 5.5 billion for Argentina. In this way, the gas will make it possible to supply Bolivia’s declining gas supply, which is no longer able to cover its own demand.

The only public work that the Government decided to prioritize is key to bringing gas to seven central and northern provinces. The gas will be for domestic use but also to allow the generation of electricity by thermal power plants.

Its scope will be for the provinces of Santiago del Estero, Tucumán, Catamarca, Salta, Jujuy, La Rioja and Córdoba. When it is completed, it will allow the shipment of about 16 million cubic meters per day.

The “reversal” already included the regular line welding of sections 2 and 3, the first 100 kilometers of the so-called “Federal Integration Gas Pipeline” – out of a total of 122 km – that extends from Tío Pujio to La Carlota, in Córdoba. , linking the Central-West and North Gas Pipelines.

To shorten work times, an automatic welding system was used (the same one applied in the GPNK) and 4,059 welds were already carried out in 41 days.

The work is progressing with the construction of the remaining 22 km of the Pipeline“, 62 kilometers of loops to the Northern Gas Pipeline at the height of Ferreyra and the City of Córdoba and the change of direction of 4 compressor plants, with the completion date of the works scheduled for the end of August.”

Techint and Sacde completed those welding, but they have not yet collected them from the national State, which owes them about $14,000 million in May, which was covered with credit from commercial banks.

The total budget for the work is US$720 million, of which the US$540 million credit from the Latin American Bank covers three quarters.
