The Juana Azurduy gas pipeline, also known as GIJA, is an operating natural gas pipeline in Bolivia and Argentina.[1]


Starting from a connection point with the Yabog gas pipeline in Campo Grande (near Yacuiba, Tarija department, Bolivia) the Juana Azurduy (GIJA) pipeline runs 15 km east on the Bolivian side of the border to the Madrejones gas field. At Madrejones it crosses south into Argentina and continues 37 km to the Refinor refinery in Campo Durán, Argentina, where a connection with the Gasoducto del Noreste Argentino Gas Pipeline has been proposed.[2][3][4] In Yacuiba, the GIJA pipeline also connects with Bolivia's GASYRG pipeline.[5]
