Pdvsa not to sign new oil supply agreement with Paraguay
Paraguay launched two international biddings to find other fuel providers
Mesmina Giménez, the foreign trade manager of Petropar, said that state-run oil giant Petróleos de Venezuela S.A. (Pdvsa) "told us they will not sign the agreement for the supply of 25,000 cubic meters of diesel on a monthly basis (around 30% of the market consumption) from this July to next December at an average price of USD 800 per cubic meter.''
Venezuela suspended oil shipment to Paraguay after the abrupt change of government in that country.
Gménez told AP that there are two international biddings under way to find other fuel providers.
Paraguay consumes an average of 300,000 cubic meters per month, which are provided by foreign companies, in the absence of oil reservoirs in the country.
Luis Jiménez Alfaro seems to have hidden under the rocks. The last time he was seen was on April 2006 walking calmly around Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetía, located nearby Caracas. At that time, more than five tons of cocaine arrived in Mexico in an airplane which took off from Venezuela, and his name featured as a missing piece of the puzzle of one of the most massive drug shipments that has been witnessed in the Western Hemisphere.
