The project consists of the installation of a pipeline that collects the oil extracted from the Vaca Muerta formation from the Bajo del Choique field to the Auca Mauida pumping station. The objective of the project is to add at least 50% more of the transport capacity of the pipeline to avoid a bottleneck in the future.
