Güiria.- As the Hydrocarbons Economic Driver marked its first anniversary, the oil working class together with representatives of the Board of Directors of Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA) verified the progress of various PDVSA offshore projects in Güiria, Sucre state.
The inspection was conducted by PDVSA executive vice president, Vice Admiral Maribel Parra; vice minister of Gas of the People’s Ministry of Petroleum, Douglas Sosa; president of the PDVSA Gas subsidiary, César Triana; as well as representatives of the companies Shell and The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago (NGC). They verified the mechanical completion of Dragon field’s submarine infrastructure which is required for the launching of the Accelerated Production Scheme for the first 300 million cubic feet of dry gas.
First, they flew over Dragon field and then visited the Wellserviser vessel, which provided support during the completion of the packing of the 16-inch submarine collection line that runs through the four gas wells, located 40 kilometers from the Paria Peninsula, in the state of Sucre.
They also toured the Domestic Market Gas Conditioning Plant (PAGMI), and noticed the advances at this important infrastructure for offshore gas fields located in the Gran Mariscal de Ayacucho Industrial Complex (CIGMA). Later, they visited the Juan Manuel Valdez Thermoelectrical Power Plant which will contribute 350 megawatts to the national electrical grid.
Prior to this visit, the Joint Coordination Commission formed by PDVSA, NGC and Shell was installed in Port of Spain, capital of Trinidad and Tobago, to follow up on gas exports negotiations to the Caribbean nation and discuss the construction, operation and maintenance of a pipeline from Dragon field to the Hibiscus field in Trinidad and Tobago.
