The $13 billion Gran Mariscal Ayacucho Industrial Complex (CIGMA) in Venezuela's Sucre state was designed to house facilities for processing production from the Orinoco Oil Belt. Products were to be transported via the Gran Gasoducto del Sur Gas Pipeline to Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, and also via the proposed Transoceanic Gas Pipeline for export to countries in Central America and the Caribbean.[1]

The complex would have included a liquefaction plant, called the Delta Caribe Oriental Terminal, receiving natural gas from the offshore Deltana platform and Mariscal Sucre gas project. The liquefied natural gas (LNG) would have been exported to various overseas markets.[1][3]

There have been no development updates since 2011 and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
