    You all the Natural Gas consumers & producers of the World,

    You must know natural gas consumption produces Nitrogene di Oxide
    which is more dangerous than Carbon di Oxide ....

    Excessive Nitrogene di Oxide in the air can induce deterioration of air
    rhythm and ........ eventually agriculture sources .

    By the way, thought nobody will sign a contract with any company in Argentina because they can´t acomplish with their word, just because the Argentine Gvt. won´t allow that......we have had the experience some years ago with a big investiment in pipelines, domestic pipe nets and some methanol plants and a lot of thermal power plants after a sell contracts between Argentines privates gas producers and Chilean gas distribuitors, electricity generatos companies and methanol producers, back uped by a both sides signed Gvt's Treats, erased by our neighbours Gvt leaving all of them with their pipes empties....So reliables they are !!!

    And, all that gas sent to Chile was first imported by Argentina from Bolivia, then sold to Chile (at a loss), because Bolivia refused to send gas to Chile. Another great example of cooperation among southern “neighbors”.
