Gas on tap for Huercal-Overa


NATURAL gas from Algeria has arrived in Huercal-Overa via the 135-kilometre Huercal-Baza-Guadix pipeline, the longest in Andalucia.

The main valve was symbolically opened by Julio Cesar Campillo, director general of Redexis Gas’s South-Mediterranean Zone, assisted by Sonia Ferrer, the Andalucia government delegate, and Huerca-Overa mayor Domingo Fernandez.

Redexis Gas has now completed six kilometres of infrastructure in the area adjoining the fairground, the bus station and Calle Dr Jimenez Diaz. It plans another 16 kilometres inside the town and will bring users savings of up to 50 per cent, the company said.
