Venezuelan oil basket ended at USD 104.92 per barrel, USD 1.76 (1.7%) above the figure recorded last week (USD 103.16), Venezuela's Ministry of Petroleum and Mining informed in its website. 

"Optimism over the global economy and concerns over supply in the Middle East due to geopolitical tensions boosted oil prices this week," explained the ministry in its website. 

Consequently, the Venezuelan oil basket averaged USD 102.25 per barrel in January.

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.
