OPEC: Venezuelan oil production down 2.4%
Oil output amounted to 2.3 million barrels per barrel in July
The information was revealed in a report prepared by the organization showing figures compiled by secondary sources from the sector. The figures indicate that Venezuelan oil output stood at 2.3 million barrels per day (bpd), that is to say 2.4% down if compared with figures recorded in July (2.4 million bpd).
Meanwhile, July reported oil output matched that from June.
However, OPEC states that according to Venezuelan figures, oil output stood at 2.8 million bpd in June, and that was the same amount reported in May by the Venezuelan Ministry of Petroleum and Mining.
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.
