Argentina's planning minister Julio de Vido and Buenos Aires province mayors signed an agreement to increase transport capacity of natural gas pipeline Gasoducto de la Costa.
The 545mn-peso (US$58mn) project entails a 20-inch, 18km loop along the El Chourrón-Las Armas stretch, the ministry said in a statement.
Other components include a 2,400hp compression plant at Las Armas and a 16-inch, 15km pipeline between the two regulation plants at Mar del Plata.
The project will expand the pipeline's capacity by 30% to 6Mm3/d and increase the number of homes supplied by 20% to 494,000.
