YPFB allocates 15.5 million litres of diesel weekly, for productive activities in Santa Cruz

Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB) reported that it supplies 4.5 million litres of diesel from national production to Santa Cruz every week, and another 11 million litres imported from Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil and Chile, to supply fuel to all service stations, direct customers and large consumers in Santa Cruz. In Arica, 44 million litres of diesel were unloaded and will be loaded daily into 80 tanks to transport it to La Paz and Santa Cruz.

46% of the burned area in Santa Cruz is forest

Forty-six per cent of the 1,419,000 hectares affected by forest fires are forests, which represents significant damage due to the impact on biodiversity. Within this framework, the Government of Santa Cruz reiterated the request to the Plurinational Legislative Assembly (PLA) to repeal Law 741, which extends logging from 5 to 20 hectares without the need for authorization to clear.
