Natural gas ‘must be for all’ say Socialists in Almeria

Natural gas for all say Socialists

THE PSOE will insist that the Government of Spain ensures that all municipalities in the AlmanzoraValley have access to natural gas.

The new gas pipeline installation between Huércal-Overa and Baza will make access to the resource available to thousands of homes and businesses.

Consequently the PSOE Secretary of Institutional Policy, Adela Segura, along with socialist mayors from the region, has requested a meeting with the Central Government in Almeria to ask it to remember the interests of the area.

PSOE mayors representing Albox, Seron, Urrácal, Lucar, Purchena and Albanchez, together with socialist spokesmen for Macael, Olula del Rio, Zurgena, and Arboleas attended the meeting at which Ms. Segura expressed satisfaction with a proposed timetable that promises completion of the project within two years.

She said: “The excellent work done by the previous socialist government in bringing natural gas to the AlmanzoraValley has resulted in it now being a reality. It is a necessity that absolutely all municipalities will benefit.”

According to recently released data the Huércal-Overa to Baza pipeline will have five major distribution plants located in Huércal-Overa; Albox; Partaloa; Tíjola; and Baza.

Whereas the logistics of supplying these municipalities will be uncomplicated, the PSOE wants assurances that neighbouring towns will have equal access to the resource.

The PSOE spokeswoman reminded the delegates at the meeting that “both the public and businesses will be delivered from oil dependency and the region will become more competitive.

It will result in huge savings for both industry and families.”  She added, “The Almanzora Valley has a decisive role to play in the economy of the province.”
