Argentina resumes gas exports to Brazil after six years

After six years, Argentina resumed its gas exports to Brazil with the start-up of the Uruguaiana Thermal Power Plant (CTU), which belongs to the company SAESA, is located in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, and can export up to 2.4 million cubic metres of natural gas per day. Each day of CTU’s operation implies a foreign exchange income of up to 500,000 dollars for Argentina, and a potential gain of more than 100 million dollars a year, if only exports were made outside the winter when the gas is needed to cover local demand.
