Work on the Northern Gas Pipeline resumes while gas imports from Bolivia continue

Finally, Work will be resumed on the reversal of the North Gasduct, a work that the Milei Government paralyzed, but in the face of gas crisis, had to resume. This work will allow the connection between the Neuquén Basin, where unconventional gas production from Vaca Muerta is growing, and seven provinces in central and northern Argentina. Meanwhile, Enarsa closed a contract with Bolivia to extend gas imports for two months.

Santiago del Estero, Tucumán, Catamarca, Salta, Jujuy, La Rioja and Córdoba are the districts involved that will be connected to the gas pipeline for home supply and electricity generation in thermal power plants. The financial contribution of the Development Bank of Latin America and the Caribbean (known as CAFby its previous name, Andean Development Corporation) was US$540 million.

So far, the reversal of the Northern Gasduct is the only national public work tendered by the government of Javier Milei. Its possibility of realization was due to the disbursement of funds from the international financial organization, which prioritizes the development of infrastructure for the energy support of the region. It is expected that the works will be completed in September, within the framework of the declining gas supply from Bolivia, which is going through an unprecedented situation of lack of fuel supply in its own country..

Javier Milei paralyzed the public works of the Northern Gas Pipeline. However, given the lack of gas in the country, he had to continue it.

By delaying the reversal of the Northern Gas Pipeline, Argentina will import gas from Bolivia again

Energía Argentina SA (Enarsa) agreed with Bolivia to continue the supply of gas to supply the demand of seven provinces in the center/north of the country during the winterin order to avoid new shortage problems and as a result of the delayed completion of the Reversal of the Northern Gasduct.

The state company announced that it signed with Yacimientos Petrolificadores Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB) the ninth addendum to the contract that binds them to ensure the supply of natural gas for the demand of Northern Argentina for the months of August and September of this year.

From Enarsa they assured that “This supply will allow the central/northern area of ​​the country to be supplied with up to 4 million cubic meters per day (MMm3/day) depending on the requirements of internal demand, while the Northern Gasduct Reversal project, currently underway, is completed. ”.
