In the midst of the tension with Milei, Weretilneck insisted on the “shared ownership” of the dams with Neuquén and workers

Governor Alberto Weretilneck, in the midst of the clashes in the Patagonian provinces with President Javier Milei, insisted this Monday on the possibility of sharing the ownership of the dams in the Comahue Basin with the province of Neuquén and the unions and workers in the sector.highlighting that this region provides 25% of the electrical energy that supplies Argentina.

This is how he expressed it when leading the act in which the first Sustainable Energy building was inaugurated, which will be the new headquarters of the provincial Energy Secretariat, and will have electricity supply generated by renewable energies on the side of Route 22, in Cipolletti, an act that he shared with his Neuquén counterpart, Rolando Figueroa.

Weretilneck was one of the first Patagonian governors to support the warning of the president of Chubut, Ignacio Torres, who threatened to cut off the gas and oil produced in his province if they do not deliver the co-participatory funds that he considers were irregularly withheld by the Government by Milei.

Furthermore, Weretilneck said that ““RÃo Negro is going to work to strongly exploit the potential of mining resources.”

At the official ceremony, Weretilneck said that “without energy there is no well-being or possibility of growing as a society”for which he proclaimed that one of the energy objectives shared with the province of Neuquén is to defend before the National State the power coming from the dams located on the Limay River.

«Since 1994, natural resources belong to the provinces“Our gas, our oil and our water are the property of the people of Neuquén and the people of Rio Negro, and that property is what we intend to be respected in future contracts that are established,” the president emphasized.

“98% of the oil and 96% of the gas consumed in the country is produced by Patagonians, mainly from Neuquén”clarified by also highlighting that “between the two provinces there is around 25% of the electrical energy that supplies Argentina.

Finally, he said that “the lack of completion of national route 22 through which practically 90% of the traffic of the two provinces enters and exits and the production of Vaca Muerta, For 30 years it is the clearest synthesis of the lack of commitment and respect of national policies for the region.

The Rio Negro governor concluded that the Patagonians demand “to be respected and through dialogue to demonstrate how to be part of a Nation. l“In the face of conflicts, the interest of the people is not to be overwhelmed by the central power and that the effort and contribution with their taxes and production be rewarded with an improvement in the lives of the people of Rio Negro,” he emphasized.
