Bolivia to Export Liquefied Petroleum Gas to Brazil

LA PAZ – Bolivia plans to start exporting liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to Brazil soon and is already selling the fuel to Uruguay, Paraguay and Peru, President Evo Morales said.

The Andean country will sign an agreement with Brazil covering the sale of LPG at international market prices, the president said in a press conference Saturday in the central city of Cochabamba.

Morales said he was hopeful that Bolivia would become an energy center in South America and planned to ink an agreement with Argentina on nuclear energy.

The new LPG market will be supplied by the plant in the southern province of Gran Chaco, with production starting at 1,000 metric tons per day and rising to 3,000 metric tons per day, Morales said.

The plant in Gran Chaco, built by Spain’s Tecnicas Reunidas, separates the liquids from the natural gas exported to Argentina so they can be processed into LPG, commonly known as propane.

The plant is currently in the test phase.

Bolivia exports about 30 million cubic meters per day of natural gas to Brazil.

Uruguay has expressed interest in importing liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Bolivia, Morales said.

Bolivian and Argentine officials signed an agreement in Buenos Aires last Thursday for the development of peaceful nuclear energy projects in Bolivia.
