  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Hydrocarbons and Energies supervises the energy policy and the development of the energy sector in the country through five vice ministries: Hydrocarbon Exploration and Exploitation (hydrocarbon exploitation), Industrialisation, Transport, and Storage of Hydrocarbons (export, trade, storage, and transportation of oil and gas), Energy Planning and Development (hydrocarbon develop

  • Energy Supply


    The production of natural gas has been on a consistent decline of around 5% per year since 2014, reaching 14.6 bcm in 2022. It grew rapidly between 2000 and 2014, increasing from 3.3 bcm to 22 bcm.

  • Energy Prices


    According to the Electricity Code, the electricity tariffs of all the companies are subject to prior approval: they are intended to be calculated on the basis of costs and a profitability rate of 9%. Electricity prices are relatively stable and stood at US$8.1c/kWh and US$10.5c/kWh, respectively, for industry and households in 2022.

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita energy consumption stood at 0.8 toe in 2022 (including 770 kWh of electricity), 39% below the average for Latin America.

    Total energy consumption has increased rapidly since 2020 (10%/year), reaching 9.6 Mtoe in 2022. It had increased rapidly between 2010 and 2019 (4%/year).

  • Issues & Prospects


    As a consequence of the increased natural gas production, Bolivia is expanding its NGL production capacity.
