Within the framework of the 11th High-Level Joint Committee meeting held in Beijing last week involving three Venezuelan ministers, Venezuela and China entered into new cooperation agreements in electric power and oil, the Venezuela's Ministry of Communication and Information stated.

"An agreement for the development of 900 megawatts of oil coke-based and carbon-based electric power has been entered into. New areas set for exploration, namely Junín 10 Sur, and the development of current fields have been agreed upon," Venezuela's Oil Minister Rafael Ramírez said, AFP cited.

The name of the company participating in the exploration of Junín 10, located in the Orinoco Oil Belt (55,314 km2 / 220,000 million of heavy oil) remains unknown.

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.
