Argentina resumes export of natural gas to supply thermal power plant in Brazil

After six years, Argentina resumed natural gas exports to Brazil with the Uruguaiana Thermal Power Plant (CTU) start-up, located in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, owned by the Argentinean company Saesa. CTU allows Argentina to export up to 2.4 million cubic metres of natural gas per day (MMm3d), with a foreign exchange income of up to $500,000, and a potential gain of more than $100 million a year if it only exported outside the winter.
