"Gas Market Integration in the Southern Cone" is part of a larger effort by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to promote integration of energy markets in South America's Southern Cone region. This book offers a comprehensive analysis of the gas industry's evolution in the region, highlighting the drivers of and obstacles to regional market integration. The authors identify barriers to integration and also present a concrete proposal based on a wealth of experience in other world regions, for overcoming these barriers to advance toward regional integration.
