The Presidente Néstor Kirchner Gas Pipeline, which is part of the Transport.Ar Program, will have an extension of 573 kilometers between the Neuquén town of Treatyén and Salliqueló, in the west of the province of Buenos Aires, crossing Río Negro and La Pampa.

The project also includes complementary works such as the Mercedes-Cardales gas pipeline and the Neuba II gas pipeline loop, thus totaling 680 kilometers of pipes in Stage I.

This infrastructure work will allow a 25% increase in the capacity of the Argentine natural gas transportation system. It will also be essential for the development of production in Vaca Muerta.
