Argentina launches Vaca Muerta pipeline component tender

Bnamericas Published: Wednesday, August 31, 2022

Argentina has launched a fresh tender linked to the Vaca Muerta gas pipeline project.

State energy company Energía Argentina is seeking bids for a contract to supply measurement and chromatography components.

Offers are due by September 14, according to a notice in the official gazette.

A similar tender had been launched earlier in the year. One party bid but the offer was not admissible because not all information requirements were met, according to Energía Argentina documents.

The company recently put out to tender a contract for compressors for the planned Tratayén and Salliqueló compression stations. Tender processes for components such as valves have also been launched. 

Argentina’s government wants to bring the first phase of the project online by around the middle of next year. Construction contracts have already been signed.

Involving around 600km of ducts, the first phase chiefly comprises the central pipeline and the Mercedes-Cardales link, infrastructure that would help ease a dispatch bottleneck at the Neuquén basin
