Business Description

Industry: Utilities - Regulated » Utilities - Regulated Gas
Compare:SPH, HOKCY, TKGSF, PPAAY, NI » details
Transportadora de Gas del Sur S.A. was incorporated under Argentine law on December 1, 1992. The Company is engaged in the transportation of natural gas, as well as production and commercialization of natural gas liquids primarily in Argentina. The segments of the company are: Regulated Natural Gas Transportation Segment., Liquids Production and Commercialization Segment, & Other Services which include midstream and telecommunications services.It currently delivers approximately 61% of the total gas transported in Argentina, through 5,671 miles of pipeline, of which it owns 4,744 miles. Substantially all of its transportation capacity, approximately 2.9 Bcf/d in 2012, is subscribed for under firm long-term transportation contracts. Its system connects major gas fields in southern and western Argentina with both distributors and large consumers of gas in those regions as well as in the greater Buenos Aires area, the main population center of Argentina. The Company is also a processor of natural gas and a marketer of NGL in Argentina. It operates the General Cerri gas processing complex and the associated Galvan loading and storage facility in Bahía Blanca in the Buenos Aires Province where NGL is separated from gas transported through its pipeline system and stored for delivery. The Company's main service area is the greater Buenos Aires region in central-eastern Argentina. It also serves the more rural provinces of western and southern Argentina. Its service area contains approximately 5.7 million end-users, including approximately 3.5 million in greater Buenos Aires. Direct service to residential, commercial, industrial and electric power generation end-users is mostly provided by four gas distribution companies in the area, all of which are connected to the Company's pipeline system: MetroGas S.A., BAN, Camuzzi Gas Pampeana S.A. and Camuzzi Gas del Sur S.A. These distribution companies serve in the aggregate approximately 67% of the distribution market in Argentina. To a limited extent, the Company competes with TGN on a day-to-day basis for interruptible transportation services and from time-to-time for new firm transportation service made available as a result of expansion projects to the distribution companies to whom both the Company and TGN are either directly or indirectly connected. It competes directly with TGN for the transportation of gas from the Neuquen basin to the greater Buenos Aires area. The Company's operations are in compliance with applicable laws and regulations related to the protection of the environment.
