La Paz, Jan 18, 2023 (AN-YPFB). – Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB) has a projection of 60,000 internal installations of gas networks for this management and for this it has a planned investment of more than Bs 515 million (USD 74 million).

"The state oil company complies with the mandate established in the Political Constitution of the State, regarding the use and enjoyment of natural resources for Bolivians, which establishes as a fundamental right of people access to basic services such as domestic natural gas ”, affirmed the executive president of YPFB, Armin Dorgathen Tapia.

According to the executive of the state oil company, “YPFB works so that the service reaches the most remote areas of the country. Each installation represents the success and satisfaction of the duty fulfilled by the company of all Bolivians with the homes of the country”.

In addition, with the commitment to continue advancing and reactivate the national economy, YPFB works with installation companies to reach families with home gas through quality installations, protecting safety and improving the quality of life of users.

“Hydrocarbons should benefit all of us who inhabit this land, which is why we seek to expand and democratize access to them. Home connections modify the lives of Bolivians because just turning on a key gives access to gas and cooking with firewood remains in the past. We improve the lives of our compatriots and we move forward,” the authority specified.


According to historical records, from 2006 to 2022 there are a total of 1,106,560 internal connections in the nine departments. Figure that exceeds 5,000,000 beneficiaries, taking into account that an average family in the country consists of five members.

In addition, this year's projection of the state oil company shows that the departments of La Paz, Cochabamba and Santa Cruz will have 44,239 installations of the total, that is, more than half, since they are the departments with the highest concentration of population and, therefore, therefore, a greater demand for gas in both the domestic and commercial categories.
