Débora Giorgi highlighted the development of compressed natural gas in Argentina last Friday in a meeting that gathered regional hydrocarbon companies. During the event, which was held at the headquarters of Mexico’s National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH), the head of this agency, Juan Carlos Zepeda Molina, praised the experience of Argentina in the field and stressed the need to “make Mexico a natural gas country”, when considering Giorgi’s proposal.
In her speech, she emphasized the Argentine industry development of CNG and presented the national supply of capital goods associated with secondary recovery of hydrocarbons, which currently consists of 90 companies capable of offering 261 products.
Among the products included in the first of a list series produced by the Ministry of Industry are: valves, compressors, separators, electrical panels, injectors, pumps (mechanical, centrifugal, screw, pneumatic, alternative), heads, filters, hoses, technology services, pipes and cables.
The minister said that Latin America should work under the logic of industrial energy interaction policies to move forward regional supply policies. In this regard, she highlighted some of the initiatives that are being implemented, such as the coordinated management of sector provision against extra-regional supply, agreements for research and technological development among governments, companies and operators, promotion of regional joint ventures for manufacturing capital goods, and the supply to global providers and contractors.
