Why this project is important
Domestic natural gas demand has been increasing, driven mainly by the facilities and industrial sectors. To meet this demand, the company has adopted a two-phase plan to expand the Master Gas System (MGS). The first phase will be completed by the end of 2017, increasing the capacity of the MGS to 9.6 billion standard cubic feet per day (Bscfd). The second phase will bring that capacity up to 12.5 Bscfd in 2019.
