Become the responsible energy major
Total puts Corporate Social Responsability at the heart of its activities and conducts the operations according to key principles.
Total in Bolivia has contributed to the country's development since 1994, as a partner and operator of important national gas production projects and developing major new fields in the country.
We have participated as non-operating partner in the San Antonio, San Alberto and XX Tarija Oeste (Itaú) blocks since the early 2000s, being part of the development of this important production fields. With GP Exploration and Production SL (subsidiary of Gazprom) and Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB), a Service Contract for the Azero Block was signed in 2014.
Since 2001 and 2003 respectively, we operate Aquio and Ipati blocks. Total E&P Bolivia has 50% in this Operating Contract signed with YPFB; our partners, Gazprom and Tecpetrol, have 20% each, and YPFB Chaco 10%.
As an operator, Total Bolivia is developing the Incahuasi and Aquio fields, the most important new fields being developed in the country.
The 8 million cubic meters of gas per day that Incahuasi produces are crucial for Bolivia´s revenues. Hydrocarbon extracted from three gas wells and treated in the plant are sent through 160 km of pipelines to be distributed by the national oil company (YPFB) and meet the countries internal and external demand. With the 1,200 million USD invested, Incahuasi adds 12% to Bolivian gas production.
