TotalEnergies Gas Cono Sur, reliability and low carbon energy for our customers

This business unit is responsible for marketing and dispatching the natural gas produced by Total Austral, securing customer supply and maximizing the value of the production of TotalEnergies in Argentina. We also market gas produced by other companies who benefit from our extended business portfolio – enabling TotalEnergies to supplement and optimize the Company’s activities.

We are a dynamic, versatile and innovative team with vast knowledge of the energy market, its players and its regulatory aspects. We are leaders in the country and in the exports market, and are strongly customer-oriented. We are engaged in the following operations: sale of wellhead gas, sale and distribution of city gate gas and sale of multi-basin gas.

We rely on three fundamental principles: anticipation, innovation, and reliability. That is why we work constantly to make sure our gas reaches our customers 24x7x365. Thus, our products are recognized for their high quality standards and supply reliability.

In Argentina, we supply natural gas to every market segment: residential and commercial, compressed natural gas stations, electric power stations and large, medium and small-sized industries. As a leading exporter of gas to Chile we also play a key role in energy integration in the Southern Cone region.

At present we sell over 15 million cubic meters of gas from all producing basins on a daily basis, which accounts for 11% of the total domestic gas marketed in the country. Our extensive customer portfolio includes all natural gas distribution companies, electric power producers and leading industries up and down the country.

In addition, we work together with our customers in the search of opportunities to improve their environmental performance, using natural gas as transition energy and, together with our renewable energies portfolio, we propose joint energy solutions.
