New observations and derived chemical abundances are reported for a sample of 57 bulge planetary nebulae (PN). Together with our previous results, a total of over a hundred objects have been analyzed, which constitute one of the largest samples of bulge nebulae studied under homogeneous conditions, including equipment and reduction procedures. In general, our data show a good agreement with some recent results in the literature, in the sense that the average abundances of bulge PN are similar to those from disk objects, however showing a larger dispersion.

Key words: planetary nebulae: general -- galaxies: bulges -- techniques: spectroscopic
