Title change[edit]

They are NOT yet in control of the fields...the comopanys have 180 days to turn them over. Please read the article. Jason Safoutin 22:24, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, though think your title is little sensationalistic. I suggest "Bolivian state take gas resources under its control" international 22:33, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
There is no sensationalism...its true...troops have been ordered to all gas fields and to take control of them to "ensure production." Call it what you like but the title speaks what is true. Jason Safoutin 22:48, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
This title is more alarmist than most of the titles on google news, though it looks like the guardian is using a similar title. SethDelisle 17:41, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

Is bolivia the second world gas producer, or is that only in S. America?

Source n.1 seems to state this is only in america. Spangle 12:43, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

Top petroleum-producing countries[edit]

This is petroleum (from 'pedia). I think statistics for natural gas are similiar (?): In order of amount produced in 2004 (MMbbl/d = millions of barrels per day):

1 peak production already passed in this state
