Bolivian Refineries Cover 71.4% Of Domestic Demand for Special Gasoline

(Energy Analytics Institute, Jared Yamin, 19.Oct.2018) — Production of special gasolines from Bolivia’s three existing refineries isn’t sufficient to cover the country’s demand.

Domestic supply only covers 71.4% of domestic market demand, down 2% compared to 2017, and down 5% between January and May of the current year, reported the daily El Diario.

In May 2018, the Jubilee Foundation reported the Gualberto Villarroel, Guillermo Elder Bell and Río Negro refineries produced a combined 3,570,000 liters per day of gasoline versus demand of 5,000,000.
