Bolivia has stepped up efforts to prepare for next year's scheduled start-up of the Bulo Bulo urea ammonia plant as part of the country's export-oriented hydrocarbon industrialization push.
State hydrocarbons company YPFB issued a call to fill 32 O&M posts for the complex in Entre Ríos, Cochabamba department, which is approximately 80% complete.
The workers will accompany Samsung Engineering, which is carrying out the US$876mn project and will operate the plant for a year or possibly two if the deal is extended.
The NOC also is hiring a consultancy firm to conduct advanced studies on the application of urea for priority crops and to promote the fertilizer's benefits among off-takers.
The 2,100t/d plant will supply 100% of Bolivia's urea needs and eliminate imports.
The government also has set its eyes on shipments to Argentina and Brazil, as well as Paraguay and Peru.
YPFB's petrochemical project pipeline includes a propylene and polypropylene complex.
