The former Secretary of Energy of the Nation, Darío Martínez, responded to the statements of the next Minister of Infrastructure, Guillermo Ferraro, who questioned the construction of gas pipelines with state funds, since “No one of us who pays taxes uses them.«. Martínez pointed out that “Milei’s future minister does not know what he is talking about.”
«On this topic, he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He doesn’t know what it is about,” said Martínez. Ferraro revealed a criticism of the work of the Néstor Kirchner gas pipeline, which transports gas from Vaca Muerta to Saliqueló, in Buenos Aires. He set his vision to end public works and make way for private sector investmentas President-elect Javier Milei expressed on repeated occasions.
Martínez explained that the Néstor Kirchner gas pipeline «All Argentines use it. Those of us who cook or heat ourselves; industries in their boilers or engines; the thermal plants that generate electrical energy, every time we turn on the light or use an appliance, the industries and workshops when they use that electrical energy, that is, all of them.
The current provincial deputy elected in Neuquén explained that “gas and electricity work as a large system and are absolutely interrelated and connected to each other.” This network allows transport and distribution of gas to different consumption points in the countrywhether for home users, commercial users, industries and thermal plants to generate electricity, he expressed.
“Then You can discuss what the financing mechanism is like. of this type of works: whether it is public or private; if it is paid with a certain rate; If it is concessioned to whoever builds it, if the rates are subsidized, to what extent and to whom. They are decisions that impact the cost of energy for all users and the economy in general.
Martínez suggested to the incoming Minister of Infrastructure that “Before making decisions on this issue, you should first internalize “What it is about and how this complex system that absolutely all Argentines use works.”
