Brazil Sighs in Relief as Bolivia Calms Down

The truce declared by Bolivian social movements after the new President, Eduardo Rodriguez Veltzé, took office may make it unnecessary to ration natural gas supplies in Brazil, according to a note issued this weekend by the Brazilian Ministry of Mines and Energy.

According to the Ministry, the tendency is for the political situation in Bolivia to return to normalcy. “A truce is in place, and I do not envision more significant supply risks,” affirms the counselor of the Brazilian Embassy in Bolivia, Minister Carmelito Melo.


On Saturday, June 11, Bolivia’s natural gas production units had already resumed their normal pace of activity, just as the Santo Alberto and Santo Antonio natural gas fields, both of which belong to Petrobras, were operating without problems, says the note from the Ministry.


“From what we have been following, gas supplies have not been interrupted, nor is there any short-term risk of a halt in the production and exportation of gas to Brazil,” Melo judges.


Brazil imports 24 million cubic meters of gas daily from Bolivia, half of what the country consumes. A large part of this flow is destined for industrial use mainli in the state of São Paulo.
