From Neuquen, the minister and presidential candidate of Unión por la Patria, Sergio Massa, announced the implementation of a Dead Cow dollar preferential for hydrocarbon industry. There, he called on workers and businessmen to join forces in pursuit of “a project that represents the idea of the country more than the individual fight”.
24 hours before the ban on making advertisements comes into effect, Massa defined the launch of the new dollar focused on the energy sector with the aim of reinforcing the Central Bank’s reserves in the face of the electoral scenario and, accompanied by governors, officials, businessmen and workers, called to continue working to defend “the instruments that we were transforming into decisions to promote the sector.”
Following this line, he called to “continue working together with businessmen, workers and with a project that represents the idea of the country more than the individual fight. We have to call everyone to that. “To call on every Neuquén, Rio Negro, to defend the idea that growth and development are not without rights.”
He also called on “every man and woman from Neuquén, from Rio Negro, to defend the idea that growth and development are not without rights” and criticized those who propose modifying labor laws and agreements: “Some raise the discussion of the elimination of compensation, others of paid vacations, others raise the discussion regarding the different benefits of the agreements. They believe that development is achieved by subjecting workers to slavery and we are convinced that they are achieved with well-paid workers with rights. “Those are the two visions of the country that are being discussed.”
At the same time he defended the usefulness of YPF for the development project “against the idea of some of wanting to privatize it again” and crossed those who insist on moving forward with deregulating the State: “I would ask them who is going to build the routes, the North Patagonian trainwho will define the mechanisms of investment if the joint planning of the national and provincial State does not do so”.
The minister arrived this afternoon in Neuquén territory, where he was received by the local governor, Omar Gutiérrez, and later headed the event during a tour of the North Pipeline, in Loma Campana. Next to the presidential candidate was the president of YPF, Pablo González, Rolando Figueroa (elected governor of Neuquén) and with Alberto Weretilneck (elected governor of Río Negro).
The pipeline North Dead Cow It has an extension of 150 kilometers and a transportation capacity of 160 thousand barrels per day.
The work also includes the largest tank farm built in Dead cow until now, with two units of 170 thousand barrels of capacity, expandable in a second stage. Each tank is 60 meters wide, which is approximately equivalent to half a professional football field and can carry the equivalent of 1,000 Olympic swimming pools.
The Government’s announcement comes at a time when the energy sector hopes to end the year with balance in the trade balance. Likewise, by 2024, projections foresee a surplus result for the first time in a decade. This is clear from the monthly report of the consulting firm Economía y Energía, directed by economist Nicolás Arceo.
In turn, companies in the hydrocarbon sector estimated that By 2030, oil and gas exports will reach $29 billion.
