Bolivia mulls gas pipeline to Argentina.

Bolivia's government and private companies are studying a project to export gas to Argentina through a proposed $1 billion pipeline to he built by the Argentine construction group Techint. The 1,500-km pipeline, known as Gasoducto Noreste Argentino, is scheduled to start up in 2005. Initially it would transport 10 million cubic meters a day from Bolivia, possibly increasing to 20 mcm/d.

Bolivia has exported gas to Argentina for 29 years in quantities much less than the project would involve. The pipeline is an opportunity to increase exports to Argentina as it has done to Brazil through the Bolivia-to-Brazil pipeline.
