Socio-Environmental Impacts Generated By the Construction of Transportation Gas Pipelines in Sensitive Tropical Areas - Proposals Aiming At a Less Impacting South-American Energy Integration
Article from: OGEL 4 (2006), in Pipelines
Natural gas is an abundant energy source in the South-American continent, by means of which the region intends to achieve certain energy independence. The continent reserves participate with 7.1% in the total world reserves, but considering the Reserves/Production (R/P) ratio, the fuel supply is guarateed for the next fifty years. The energy integration of the continent by means of NG emerges as a real and feasible possibility, which may derive from a greater integration of the continent in the ambit of infrastructure and of the markets. There are several projects ...
