Prevention among us all



*Northeast Argentine Gas Pipeline

Worldwide statistics show that the main cause of accidents and emergencies related to gas pipelines are caused by excavations carried out by third parties without proper coordination.

The integrity of the gas transportation system is an issue that requires the commitment, primarily, of the pipeline operating companies, but also of property owners, neighbors, excavation and utility companies, and state road maintenance agencies.

What is expected from

community stakeholders?

Neighbors and property owners

  • Take care of and respect the signs that warn of the presence of pipelines.
  • Know what can and cannot be done in the pipeline safety zone.
  • Notify TGN of any irregularity or event they notice.

Contractors and service companies

  • Call TGN if they need to carry out earthworks near a gas pipeline strip.
  • Comply with the process for third party works defined by the company.

Public agencies

Notify TGN when they detect works and projects to be developed in the safety area of gas pipelines and, therefore, need our authorization and advice.
