Background

The Industrial Complex Gran Mariscal Ayacucho (CIGMA) is located in the Valdez Municipality of Sucre state and was initiated by Hugo Chavez. The Industrial Complex Gran Mariscal de Ayacucho will house liquefaction, industrialization and petrochemical plants, and will facilitate the processing of crudes from the Orinoco Oil Belt. Total investment will be $13,000 million. Products will be transported towards the 12,515 kilometers of the Great Southern Gas Pipeline running to Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, and also towards the Transoceanic Gas Pipeline for the brother countries in Central America and the Caribbean.[1]

The complex will include a 1 billion cubic feet of gas a day (bcf/d) capacity liquefaction plant that will receive natural gas from the offshore Deltana and Mariscal Sucre projects, and produce liquefied natural gas (LNG) for export to the US.[2]

There have been no development updates in over ten years and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
