Venezuela's oil drilling in October slipped 1.8% as appears from data supplied by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in its monthly report.

The numbers of the oil cartel, according to market secondary sources, show that Venezuela produced 2.33 million barrels of oil per day (bpd) in October 2012, compared to 2.38 million bpd drilled in October 2011.

In October this year, however, the Venezuelan monthly output grew 18,300 bpd, or 0.7%, compared to September 2012.

The OPEC report also included the production numbers furnished by Venezuela, under which the domestic production in October 2012 stood for 2.7 million bpd, 33,000 bpd or 1.17% less than 2.81 million in September.

The OPEC production in the aggregate amounted to 30.9 million bpd, including oil production from Iraq. This means that Member States would not observe the oil production ceiling at 30 million bpd that had been agreed by the organization in its last meeting held in the middle of 2012.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
