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.
The complex would have included a liquefaction plant, called the Delta Caribe Oriental Terminal, receiving natural gas from the offshore Deltana and Mariscal Sucre gas projects. The liquefied natural gas (LNG) would have been exported to the US.
There have been no development updates since 2011 and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
