New ‘Virtual Pipeline’ supplies LNG to Argentina’s industry


Argentina-based Galileo Technologies has implemented a new Virtual Pipeline that supplies liquefied natural gas (LNG) to a thermal power plant in the Cuyo region, Argentina.

Located at a site owned by Transportadora de Gas del Norte S.A. (TGN), next to the compression plant ‘La Mora’, the Virtual Pipeline consists of nine Cryobox’s connected to the TGN pipeline.

In operation 24/7 the pipeline produces approximately 120 tonnes of LNG per day and continually supplies the Methax Thermal Power Plant, which generates 40MW (megawatts) of power.

“Our technology allows us to liquefy gas directly into the well and transport it in cryogenic iso tanks to deliver it according to the demand from the consumers,” commented Juan Ojanguren, Vice President of Galileo Energia S.A.
