Bahia Blanca (Puerto Rosales) Crude exports:


The new (parallel) oil pipeline being built from Vaca Muerta Shale Oil and Gas field to Puerto Rosales is designed and expected to carry 50,000 cubic meters of crude per day.

Additionally to this storage capacity is being increased by 50,000 cubic meters.

The forecast is that it should be operational towards the end of 2023 and begin feeding the new tank farm, and eventually the new pier with 2 berths at a later date.

At this moment the oil companies extracting crude from Vaca Muerta are tendering to be able to use the pipeline for their required volumes.

This investment is a consequence of the diversified sourcing brought on by the war in the Black Sea area.
