Petrobras received authorization from the Ministry of Mines and Energy to import up to 10.08 million cubic meters per day of natural gas from Bolivia.

The authorization is valid until the end of 2020 and was published in the Federal Register on October 28.  It also involves a guarantee for additional imports of up to 1 million cubic meters per day for use in the transport system.

According to the ministry’s publication, the gas to be imported will have the potential to meet the demand for thermoelectric plants, with transportation through the Bolivia-Brazil gas pipeline.

The delivery location will be on the border between the two countries in Corumbá, in Mato Grosso.

Petrobras must submit reports on the import operations carried out, including daily volumes, to ANP, the regulator.
