The damage caused to police installations after the recent political and social unrest in Bolivia reach Bs. 150 million ($21.7 million), said the head of the institution, Rodolfo Montero. Several police quarters were burned by Evo Morales’ supporters after his resignation to the presidency.
Brazil’s national agency for petroleum, natural gas and biofuels (ANP) says that, until fresh Bolivian elections are conducted, discussions will remain suspended. To further complicate things, Petrobras still has considerable unsupplied gas credits under the expiring contract which could last an additional two to four years.
Work on the Carrasco-Cochabamba Pipeline (GCC) was completed and soon operations will return to normal levels which will allow the supply of natural gas to the western cities of Cochabamba, Oruro and La Paz as well as the industrial sector impacted by the lack of supply.
