Evo Morales’ recent resignation, impacted on the export of gasbol, raised concerns to Brazil. Even if the situation is still normalized, for entrepreneurs, the event reinforces the need for a contingency plan. Petrobras, for example, already has an action program that involves reducing its own consumption of natural gas on its platforms and importing Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).
The state, which has contingency plans in all their risk units, is also preparing to meet the needs of demand, if there is actually a failure in the supply of gas in the country.
Last Thursday (14), Bolivian oil company YPFB informed Petrobras and Argentine company IEASA that the political crisis in the country can in fact hinder compliance with the contract for gas supply, with fluctuations in the volume transported or Interruptions.
Décio Oddone, Director General of the National Petroleum Agency, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP), also said: “In the event of a reduction in bolivia’s supply, measures may be adopted as an increase in the import of LNG and use of substitute fuels, such as Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), fuel or diesel oil (for the supply of thermoelectric plants). ”ACESSE AS REDES DA PANORAMA OFFSHORE:
