Bolivia’s Gas-Bottling Plants Work Overtime to Ensure Supply

LA PAZ – The plants that fill canisters with liquefied petroleum gas for heating and cooking will work Sundays and holidays to ensure adequate supplies for the austral winter, Bolivian state oil company YPFB said Monday.

LPG bottling facilities across the Andean nation will boost output “as a provision against any increase in demand” during the months of June, July and August, YPFG said in a statement.

Shortages of LPG during the Southern Hemisphere winter often lead to protests, especially in Bolivia’s chilly highland regions.

Sales rose last month to an average of 120,000 canisters per day, according to YPFB, which said it is planning for a further increase in demand to 139,000 canisters per day.

The opening last July of Bolivia’s first natural gas liquids separation plant has made the country self-sufficient in LPG, increasing output of the fuel from 987 metric tons per day to 1,307 metric tons, YPFB said.

Bolivia’s total production of natural gas is roughly 60 million cubic meters per day, the bulk of which is exported to Brazil and Argentina.
