The eighth edition of the Citgo-Venezuela Heating Oil Program began on Thursday. Under the program, free heating oil will be provided to some 100,000 low-income households in the US that cannot afford heating oil during winter.

The eighth program was launched at the Night of Peace Family Shelter in Baltimore attended by Citgo Petroleum Corporation President and CEO Alejandro Granado, Citizens Energy Corporation Chairman Joseph P. Kennedy II, and Venezuelan Deputy Minister for North America Claudia Salerno Caldera.

The program, which began in 2005 in response to the high prices of heating oil resulting from hurricanes Katrina and Rita, has helped so far some 1.7 million people by supplying them over 200 million gallons of heating oil.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
