Bolivia puts on major energy congress

The annual congress of WEC Bolivia this month will look at national and regional energy prospects in the backdrop of global oil and gas dynamics.

Where is the gas industry moving towards? What is the future of petroleum? And what are the new technologies driving the energy sector? These are some of the issues to be discussed at Bolivia Gas & Energía on 20–21 August 2014 in Santa Cruz.Bolivia2013_EvoMorales

The congress has been held every year since 2008 by the Bolivian Chamber of Hydrocarbons and Energy (CBHE), the WEC Bolivian national committee. It is the largest event of its type in Bolivia.  Evo Morales, President of Bolivia (pictured above), spoke at last year’s event.

The 2014 event will be held under the theme “Energy globalisation: the future of petroleum, gas and other energies”. It will look at the following topics: global trends in petroleum and gas, nuclear, energy efficiency, geothermal, new drilling
techniques, Mexican energy reforms, and Bolivian programmes and investments.Bolivia2013_expo
