  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Hydrocarbons supervises the exploitation, export, trade, storage, and transportation of oil and gas. The Ministry of Energy supervises electricity, alternative energy, nuclear and lithium. In 2017, the former Ministry of Energy and Hydrocarbons was split into these two Ministries. This reorganization will allow the new Ministry of Energy to lead the transition to renewables.

  • Energy Supply


    The production of liquid hydrocarbons (crude oil and condensate) has been decreasing since 2014 to 2.9 Mt in 2018 (-15%); previously, they increased at the very rapid pace of around 10%/year between 2010 and 2014, when it reached a maximum of 3.4 Mt.. Crude oil exports are marginal.

  • Energy Prices


    The price paid by final consumers for natural gas is fixed by ministerial decree. It is re-examined periodically according to the currency values. In 2017, the ANH resolution n° ULGR 0331/2017 determined the maximum prices for natural gas to be sold in the national market. The maximum prices ranged from US$1.84-2.11/cf (US$65-89/1,000cm) depending on the consumer category.

  • Energy Consumption

    The country's energy consumption per capita is low but growing, at 0.8 toe in 2018, including 750 kWh of electricity.

    Since 2010, total energy consumption increased by an average of 5%/year, reaching 9 Mtoe in 2018.

  • Issues & Prospects


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