Natural gas transportation

Activity

We are the most important gas transportation company in our country and we operate the longest pipeline system in Latin America, both efficiently and safely.

Natural gas transportation has been governed by Law Nº 24,076 since the privatization of the state gas company in December 1992.

Our gas transportation system connects the Argentine southern and western gas reserves, going through seven provinces, to supply with natural gas the city of Buenos Aires, the Greater Buenos Aires as well as the center and south of our country.

We transport over 60% of the gas consumed in our country along our pipeline system that reaches a total length of 9,231 km.

Natural Gas Transportation Modalities

Firm Transportation:

Service rendered without interruptions or reductions. The customer pays a fixed rate for the reserved capacity.

Interruptible Transportation:

This service is subject to interruptions, depending on the transportation system’s available capacity. The rate is variable, subject to the transported volume.

Exchange and Displacement:

It is a transportation service that works in a direction opposite to the flow of the gas. It is interruptible, subject to the kind of service.

Transportation System Expansions

Transportation System Expansions are conducted by means of Open Seasons, through which interested parties are invited to submit their firm transportation capacity requirements.

Since the beginnings of our operations in 1992, we have expanded our transportation system from 43 MMm³/d to 85,5 MMm³/d to meet the gradual demand increase, by means of the installation of pipeline loops and additional power at the compressor plants along the transportation system.

TGS’s System

TGS is the largest gas transporter in Latin America. Its pipelines, reaching a total length of 9,231 km, link the Neuquen, San Jorge and Austral basins- at the south and west of our country – with the main consumption centers in the southern and center regions in Argentina, including the Greater Buenos Aires and the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires.
