Abstract

El presente documento realiza un análisis del negocio del Gas Natural en Bolivia y de sus posibles impactos en las recaudaciones, exportaciones y el Producto Interno Bruto. Las principales conclusiones sugieren que, el sector de hidrocarburos se perfila como uno de los pilares para el crecimiento de la economía llegando a contribuir con 1,5 puntos porcentuales al crecimiento del PIB hacia el año 2007 y, si se concretan nuevos proyectos energéticos, la contribución podría alcanzar a casi 2,5 puntos porcentuales. De la retrospectiva realizada del negocio del gas en Bolivia, se concluye que la normativa que acompañó al sector fue buena; sin embargo, se ve la necesidad de que ésta se actualice y considere ahora la nueva situación de Bolivia como país excedente de reservas para otorgarles un mejor aprovechamiento impulsando el desarrollo de nuevos proyectos y nuevos mercados. Asimismo, si bien la política de mediano y largo plazo hasta el momento habría sido enfocada a la exportación de este energético, se hace necesario desarrollar políticas que incentiven el uso doméstico del gas, en vista de las abundantes reservas y su bajo costo con relación a otros energéticos.
