Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the possibilities of natural gas import from Argentina or Bolivia to Brazil. It is possible to verify the existence of a consumption market that may become the importation of gas attractive. More than a simple trade deal, the construction of a gas duct may help to improve the existence of a future common market: the Mercosul.
