The George Washington University Washington D.C. March - 2002 Overcoming barriers to investment in the A view from the Southern Cone
Scenario Since Bolivia is a gas exporting country, my presentation aproaches the subject from the point of view of gas reserves and gas transportation.

Hydrocarbon Supply and Demand Hydrocarbon importing countries in S.A. purchase their oil requirements from Venezuela, Colombia or Ecuador. Brazil is the only country with major purchases from the international market. Gas is exported from Bolivia and Argentina Conclusion: S.A is capable of supplying its hydrocarbon needs with significant export surpluses

Transportation System Investments in physical integration will encourage the energy integration in the region To have a free flow of energy among the countries it is necessary to promote the physical integration of gas pipelines. Conclusion:
To overcome the Investment barriers The investing Corporation needs: Significant hydrocarbon potential Reasonable Infrastructure Stable Laws of Hydrocarbon Political stability Contract and Tax stability Reasonable Return on the Investment Acceptable Environmental Laws Compatible Regulations
To overcome the Investment barriers The host country needs: Technical and Financial Capabilities Parent company guarantees Government take between 35-50% Surtax inclusion Apply country regulatory system Apply country environmental Law Accept and recognize social needs of the people
Obstacles to investment The absence of compatible regulations as well as the disparity of legal and institutional frameworks Restrictions of different hydrocarbons laws Bolivia, Law 1689 Transfers activities to private investment through joint venture contracts. Transfers UPSTREAM activities to private investment through joint venture contracts. Establishes a transparent process for the nomination of exploration areas. Eliminates any restrictions for the import, export and domestic marketing of hydrocarbons and its byproducts. Opens activities to private sector investment. Opens DOWNSTREAM activities to private sector investment.
Obstacles to investment Restrictions of different hydrocarbons law Exploration, Exploitation and Marketing are activities reserved to the State Transport, Storage and Distribution: activities open to private investment Mexico Construction, operation and ownership of systems. Marketing, exports and imports Open access to the pipeline system
Two political trends clearly defined coexist in Latin America: A comparison between two approaches State Oil companies, that increase their participation in the economy Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela and Ecuador Increased their revenues due to the high oil prices
Two political trends clearly defined coexist in Latin America: A comparison between two approaches Countries where privatization of state owned companies took place Argentina, Bolivia and Peru Increase in the investment in exploration and exploitation over the last five years
Protection of the land Indigenous Territories Protected Areas Exploration & Exploitation Approximately 40%, 420.000 sq km, of Bolivia´s territory is closed for investment
The Caño Limon oil pipeline, 230.000 bpd of capacity, runs 780 kilometres from Colombian's oil fields north-eastern Arauca department, near Venezuelan border, to the port of Coveñas Caño Limon is jointly operated by Colombian state oil company Ecopetrol and the U.S. oil company Occidental Petroleum Terrorism Colombian case
These attacks can be compared with the worst marine spills: Terrorism Since 1986 there has been 700 attacks again the pipeline which caused an overalll spillage of 2.2 million barrels of oil. 1967: Torrey Canyon off land´s end in England spilled 830,000 barrels. 1978: Amoco Cadiz off the Brittany coast of France spilled 1.6 million barrels of oil. 1989: Exxon Valdez in Alaska spilled 240,000 barrels.
Concluding remarks Infrastrcture is required to continue with the process of integration thus making investments possible. Equilibrium between an open market economy and the social responses to satisfy the needs of the countries. To overcome barriers to private investment in energy it is crucial to promote the sustainability of democracies.
Concluding remarks Terrorism is a barrier to which we do not have an answer today but it is related to education and to the understanding of a new social state of affairs in the world.
Concluding Remarks The understanding of the major corporations of this new social state of affairs will help in overcoming the investment barriers in Latin America
Gasoducto de la Integración Source: Ministry of Mines and Energy, Brazil Petrobras and Snam of group ENI signed in June of 2001 an agreement for the accomplishment of a technical and economic viability study. Lenght:Investment: 5,250 km $US 5 billion The project directly involves to Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina and Paraguay, and in the near future extend to Uruguay. Back

Obstacles to investment Restrictions of different hydrocarbons laws Argentina, Law 17319 Exploration permits are granted by the Executive Branch Exploitation permits are granted by the Executive Branch Stablishes the free comercialization of natural gas, nevertheless, exports are subject to previous authorization and satisfy the domestic consumption. Free import of hydrocarbons Free determination of prices, with the exemption of Transport and Gas Distribution rates which are regulated
Obstacles to investment Restrictions of different hydrocarbons laws Peru, Law 26221 Licences for exploration and exploitation are issued by Perupetro The main objective of the legislation is to encourage private investment in exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons Tax and exchange rate stability are guaranted by contract
Protection of the land – Bolivian case Pipeline San Miguel – San Matías Indigenous Territories Protected Areas Modification of the route to reduce the impact on the Chiquitano forest Constitution of the foundation for the Chiquitano forest (US$ 20 million) * Implementation of the Indigenous Development Plan (US$ 2.0 million) Program of reforestation Pipeline Bolivia - Brasil Indigenous Territories Protected Areas Participation in the Trust Fund (US$ 1.7) Implementation of the Indigenous Development Plan (US$ 2 milllion) Indigenous Territories Protected Areas *: OPIC’s requirement
