The document states that YPFB authorities will expand the information in a meeting with international media scheduled for today in the Germania Room of the Hotel Europa, in La Paz.

In recent days, the president of YPFB, Armin Dorgathen, reported that this company is currently evaluating the possibility of leasing facilities to Argentina for gas export from the Vaca Muerta field to the Brazilian market.

“Bringing gas, what is it going to do? It is going to bring more resources to all Bolivians, we are going to rent the pipelines so that gas can pass (…),” said the corporate leader.

Dorgathen explained that, from a purely commercial point of view, the best outlet for the Argentine product, “wherever you look, is Bolivia.”

He mentioned that there are several projects in other countries to export gas from the Vaca Muerta field, in Argentina; However, the “most viable, the cheapest, which is already built, is the one in Bolivia.”

He added that the Andean Amazon country is now ready, and that it is up to the Argentine side to decide the route they want to take, if they modify their regulations to be able to do so.

Dorgathen stressed that Bolivian gas pipelines currently have a “quite extensive and very efficient” transportation capacity, and noted that they can even increase that potential through compression stations.

He insisted that renting the gas pipeline to Argentina would mean more economic resources for the Plurinational State.

Additionally, he announced that YPFB wants to invest in the Vaca Muerta field, located in the Argentine province of Neuquén with the objective of “(…) producing natural gas and taking it to the Brazilian market.”

He said in this regard that there are several opportunities that open up for YPFB with the Vaca Muerta hydrocarbon, contrary to what was said at the beginning in which it was seen as something bad.

“(…) It is something very good, it is something that will (…) strengthen us and will allow us to bring gas to Brazil,” concluded the Petroleum and Natural Gas engineer graduated from the Bolivian Private University.
