Eduardo Fernandez, the president of the civic committee of O’Connor province in the Bolivian department of Tarija, claims that eight gas-producing wells in the Margarita field are being overexploited.

Fernandez, who was quoted by Esmerk News, claims the wells will be depleted in 5-7 years if production continues at 18 million cubic metres per day, which is 80-90% of capacity.
