Incahuasi Plant: defying geography to provide gas

Total in Bolivia and Incahuasi Project collaborators overcame Andean geographical challenges and built a gas treatment plant in the middle of the Guarani Territory.

Andean foothills, a major challenge

The diverse team´s synergy made it possible to construct amid the Andean Foothills, with pipelines seldom traveling over 40 degree slopes and transporting material through narrow dirt roads surrounded by precipices, facing major logistical difficulties. With the main city, Santa Cruz de la Sierra, laying five hours away, innovative solutions had to be created as to succeed with total security. Geoscientists and perforation teams had to work together to attain the gas reservoir at more than 5600 meters; project managers defy complex construction puzzles and IT experts connect them all.

A contribution to Bolivia´s economy

Hydrocarbon extracted from four gas wells and treated in the Incahuasi Plant are sent through 160 km of pipelines to be distributed by the national oil company (YPFB) .  The Incahuasi Plant´s capacity of 11 million cubic meters of gas per day represents an important contribution to fulfill internal demand and contracts with neighboring Argentina and Brazil.
