Peru and Bolivia sign agreement to massify gas

During the Presidential Meeting and the VI Peru-Bolivia Binational Cabinet, headed by the Heads of State of Peru, Pedro Castillo and of Bolivia, Luis Arce, four cooperation agreements were signed to “expedite the massification of natural gas” as well as “offer prices accessible LP gas to the southern population, promote rural electrification in Puno and the formalization of mining in both countries, among others ”.

Specifically, Eduardo González Toro, Minister of Energy and Mines of Peru and his partner Franklin Molina, signed the Inter-Institutional Cooperation Agreement for energy integration between both countries, placing emphasis on the natural gas industry.

“Studies will be developed to determine the technical and economic feasibility of interconnecting the project to build a gas pipeline to the south with a possible pipeline from Bolivia.” In this way, -said Minem- “the neighboring country will be able to develop a natural gas liquefaction plant in the port of Ilo to export it and supply the Peruvian market.” Even Minister Gonzales affirmed that the aforementioned agreement would benefit Peru “with the redundancy for the supply of gas for the South Energy Node, with greater availability of that fuel, among others.”
