Pdvsa seeks to build gas pipeline to supply Andean region
Low-income sectors are hit by shortage of domestic gas
The oil minister stated some 86 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) filling plants have been incorporated. However, in an attempt to improve transport, a natural gas pipeline may be built during the 2013-2019 presidential term, state-run news agency AVN cited.
For his part, Carabobo state governor Henrique Fernando Salas Römer complained to the Executive Office about reductions in gas supply across the country, particularly in low-income sectors.
