Total Austral with a record production in Tierra del Fuego
Total Austral reports that this week a record production was achieved in Tierra del Fuego with a volume of 22.8 million cubic meters/day from the offshore fields located north of the Province of Tierra del Fuego.
This record was possible thanks to the expansion project in Cañadón Alfa plant, opened last May 16, where new units were installed to expand the compression capacity, the laying of a new 27 km gas pipeline between the Río Cullen and Cañadón Alfa plants and of a 2 km long gas export line, to carry gas in commercial conditions towards the General San Martín transportation gas pipeline.
This project, together with the recent Vega Pléyade development, injects greater gas volumes in the local market and thus reduces imports by approximately 8 million cubic meters during the peak demand period in Argentina.
