On March 20, 2013, through Supreme Decree No. 1539, regulations for both compression and decompression activities were approved.
Both decrees have been endorsed by the Ministry of Hydrocarbons and Energy, the state-owned oil company YPFB and the National Hydrocarbons Agency.
“Finally, in the short term, we should be approving the last Supreme Decree of the package, which is related to this activity’s rates, and with that we would close the virtuous circle of GNC. In a few months, we will have the opportunity to provide with natural gas to the populations that are up to 250 km. away in a profitable and scientifically proven way,” Arnez highlighted.
As a result, CNG will be available for both residential and vehicular use around the remote areas.
Besides, the official explained that other places (more than 250 km. away from urban areas) the LNG is the choice: “From the Rio Grande liquefaction plant, the natural gas will be transported to regasification stations located in 26 towns.”
