Bolivia Natgas Liquefaction Plant Comes Online

LA PAZ – Bolivia on Friday inaugurated a natural gas liquefaction plant built by Spanish companies Sener Ingenieria y Sistemas S.A. and Ros Roca Indox Cryo Energy to supply the domestic market.

President Evo Morales and the head of state energy company YPFB, Carlos Villegas, presided over the inauguration ceremony in the eastern province of Santa Cruz, where they took part in a liquefied natural gas loading, transport and distribution test.

The plant, located in Rio Grande, Santa Cruz, will process 12 million cubic feet per day of natural gas and convert it into 210 tons of LNG for transport via tank truck to selected towns and cities, including Cobija and Trinidad, the capitals of the provinces of Pando and Beni.

YPFB awarded the Spanish consortium a contract to build the LNG plant, as well as regasification installations in 27 populations centers, a project with a total investment cost of $137 million.

Separately, Villegas said YPFB’s program to install natural gas distribution networks in urban areas has benefited 1.7 million people to date.

Morales also confirmed Friday that preliminary operating tests will be carried out on Oct. 10 on a natural gas liquids separation plant being built by Spanish engineering firm Tecnicas Reunidas in southern Bolivia.
