Bolivian, Argentina state-run oil companies sign joint venture to explore in Bolivia's Charagua area


Petroleumworld.com 01 17 2017

The state-run oil companies of Bolivia and Argentina, Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB) and YPF, signed a contract on Monday to jointly explore and drill an area in the Charagua area of Bolivia's Santa Cruz province.

If the project is deemed commercially viable, the companies will invest around $1.177 billion and form a joint venture in which the Bolivian company will have a 51-percent stake, CEO of YPFB, Guillermo Acha, said in a statement.

Charagua is believed to have 2.7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and an expected maximum daily output of 10.2 million cubic meters. The contract is valid for 40 years and needs to be approved by Bolivia's congress, Acha said.
