Argentina awards engineering contract for phase 2 of Vaca Muerta gas pipeline

Bnamericas Published: Monday, November 28, 2022

Argentine state energy firm Energía Argentina has awarded a front-end engineering design contract for the planned second phase of the Vaca Muerta gas pipeline megaproject.

The work was landed by company Suring Ingeniería del Sur, a company representative confirmed to BNamericas.

Offers placed by consortium GIE-Latintub and Transportadora de Gas del Sur had been deemed inadmissible, according to Energía Argentina tendering documents. 

The first phase, already in the construction phase, involves pipeline work between Tratayén in Neuquén province and Salliqueló in Buenos Aires province (558km). Ancillary projects are included, among them construction of the Mercedes-Cardales duct (73km), in Buenos Aires province. This would link Argentina’s northern and southern gas systems. 

The second phase – which may need private investment to advance – would involve laying pipeline between Salliqueló and San Jerónimo in Santa Fe province (484km), among other elements.
