Argentina launched the first in a series of tenders related to a project to expand the natural gas transport and distribution network in provinces Buenos Aires, Chubut, Río Negro and Santa Fe.
The expansion project has a budget of 4bn pesos (US$255mn) and will bring natural gas access to 140,500 homes, state news service Télam reported.
A subsequent tender will be launched next week for the supply of compressors, followed by a call for the project's construction.
The expansion project will connect to the GNEA pipeline currently under construction in northeastern Argentina.
