MEDELLIN, Colombia (ICIS)--Bolivia’s EBIH has invited firms to join its database for the conceptual engineering studies of four petrochemical plants, the state-owned hydrocarbons industrialisation company said on Tuesday.

The projects include an ethylene oxide (EO) and ethylene glycol (EG) plant; a polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plant; a propylene and polypropylene (PP) plant; and a benzene, toluene and xylene (BTX) plant.

EBIH, a subsidiary of state-run oil company YPFB, said interested parties have until 19 April to submit details.

EBIH was created by the Bolivian government in 2008 and is charged with developing domestic gas-fuelled heavy industry.

The four petrochemical plants are part of a $2.4bn (€1.8bn) investment plan to build seven industrial complexes between 2013-2016, EBIH said.
