The Regional Gas Pipeline Center II, which will be connected to the Argentine Northeast Gas Pipeline (GNEA), is designed to expand the capacity of the Regional Gas Pipeline Center, which is at 100% capacity.

The project is budgeted at $75 million with an estimated execution time of 12 months making the expected completion date in late 2018. The project includes installation of 45 miles (72 km) of 12-inch pipeline and 29 miles (47 km) of 10-inch pipe with their respective launch and scraper reception traps, and two 40/10 bar ERP units located in the cities of Rafaela and Sanchales.
