YPF Albardon Fuel Plant:
During 2014, and based on a request from YPF S.A., a fuel plant with a storage capacity of 300 m³ and a lubricant workshop were built in the Albardón industrial park. From this plant, located in a strategic place in the province of San Juan, YPF distributed fuels and lubricants to the different mining projects in the province, in exploration and exploitation. From Albardón, YPF has had a permanent presence in all the mining projects in the province and neighboring provinces, accompanying these projects with its services: Gualcamayo Project (Minas Argentinas), Los Azules Project, Minsud (Iglesia), Farallón Negro (Province of Catamarca), Casposo, Compañía Minera del Pacífico, Sibelco, San Antonio Internacional and Filo del Sol. From February 2014 to date, an average of 1,400 m³ per month have been shipped from the plant. Until the date of termination of the lease agreement with YPF, the plant was only used to sell fuel to mining projects by decision of the oil company, but its strategic location on Route 40 and its easy access would allow extending the activity to transport companies, buses, agriculture and industry. In case the interested party, in addition to the purchase, needs some additional service, the company has a work team to manage the operation of the same: invoicing, dispatch, and in case it is needed, drivers of hazardous substances to carry out the freight of fuel. Also, within the activities of the company, we can offer the maintenance of the plant, and the calibration of its equipment, according to the requirements of the Secretary of Energy of the Nation.
