Background

The GasAndes Pipeline is a 463 km (288 mi) long natural gas pipeline from La Mora, Mendoza in Argentina to San Bernardo on the outskirts of Santiago, Chile. In 1991, Argentina and Chile concluded the Gas Interconnection Protocol. For the implementation of this protocol several pipeline projects were proposed. The GasAndes Pipeline project was proposed by the consortium of NOVA Corporation of Canada, Chilean companies Gasco and Gener, and Argentine companies Compañía General de Combustibles and Techint Compañía Ténica Internacional. The feasibility study of the pipeline was concluded in 1994. The pipeline was commissioned in 1997. The diameter of the pipeline is 610 millimetres (24 in) and the annual capacity is 3.3 billion cubic meters. It is supplied mainly from the Neuquén gas fields. Total investment in the project was US$1.46 billion.
