Bolivia's gas proven reserves have been certified in 8.95 trillion cubit feet (TCF), which is lower than the last certification in 2018 (10.7 TCF) made by the Canadian firm Sproule, informed the Government. However, the reserves are enough to granted the export contracts to Brazil and Argentina and the internal market, said Hydrocarbons Minister, Victor Hugo Zamora.
The new Bolivian Government named Oscar Serrate as Extraordinary Ambassador to the United States. Serrate will be the first Ambassador in the US in 11 years, when the then Ambassador Gustavo Guzman was expelled by the US government in response to a similar move from Evo Morales' government. Serrate was Ambassador to the United Nations.
Bolivia's Hydrocarbons Minister, Victor Hugo Zamora, said that all oil & gas activities (exploration and exploitation) will be stopped in the Tariquia natural reserve in Tarija, south of Bolivia. He added the Government made the commitment to protect the reserve from oil activities but he acknowledged that this will not be an easy task as there are already contracts with hydrocarbon companies.
