The proceeds from the placement will be used mostly to partially finance infrastructure works, mainly related to the Duplicar Project, which consists of a project to expand Oldelval’s transportation capacity that includes: (i) the laying of approximately 525 km of pipelines along Rio Negro, La Pampa and Buenos Aires; (ii) the repowering of pumping stations; and (iii) the replacement of the section in the Bahía Blanca area. This will allow, once the work is completed, to increase the country’s oil exports between approximately 180,000 and 250,000 barrels/day.
