Pdvsa seeks to build gas pipeline to supply Andean region

Low-income sectors are hit by shortage of domestic gas

Friday November 16, 2012  01:50 PM
State-owned oil company Pdvsa's President Rafael Ramírez informed that building a natural gas pipeline to improve supply in Venezuela's Andean region (states of Mérida, Táchira, and Trujillo) is under consideration.

The oil minister stated some 86 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) filling plants have been incorporated. However, in an attempt to improve transport, a natural gas pipeline may be built during the 2013-2019 presidential term, state-run news agency AVN cited.

For his part, Carabobo state governor Henrique Fernando Salas Römer complained to the Executive Office about reductions in gas supply across the country, particularly in low-income sectors.

This is all there is

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
