Bolivia and Mexico discuss gas export

Jul 28, 2004 02:00 AM

Bolivian Foreign Minister Juan Siles began a visit to Mexico to continue dialogues on export of Bolivian natural gas, the Mexican Foreign Ministry said.
The visit came after Bolivia decided to export gas and channel resources into social-policy works, the Foreign Ministry said.

Siles will follow up consultations initiated by Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Derbez during his visit to Bolivia in June. Mexico and Bolivia have discussed export of LNG from Bolivia to Mexico in the future.
During his stay in Mexico, the Bolivian minister will meet his Derbez and officials of the Energy Ministry and the Federal Electricity Commission.

Mexico has to import about 30 % of natural gas since its production cannot meet the demand of domestic market.
It produced 4.5 bn cfpd of natural gas last year, but the domestic market needs 5.5 bn cfpd.
