The article focuses on the fines imposed by Chile's antitrust court to four industrial gas companies for colluding in the supply of medical gases. The court said that local subsidiaries of AGA, Air Liquide, Indura and Praxair had acted in a way that caused a 2004 tender to supply oxygen to fail. Linde, AGA's parent company, said its Chilean subsidiary would appeal against its $750,000 fine, and claimed the court's decision was unjustified.
