(Energy Analytics Institute, 30.Sep.2020) — If Argentina is unable to boost its natural gas production, piped gas imports from Bolivia as well as liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports injected from Escobar may not be sufficient to cover demand in the domestic market. As such, Argentina could be forced to opt for more expensive energy options such as only using liquid fuels in thermal power plants, hiring a second regasification vessel, retracting exports or using gas pipelines linking Argentina with Chile to import gas from Chile brought into that country in the form of LNG.
