Speaking at the Gas Exporting Countries Forum in Doha, Qatar, Venezuela proposed fostering multilateral cooperation with a view to securing evolution and stability of the market and fair prices for hydrocarbons.
Douglas Sosa, the Vice-Minister for Gas, Venezuelan Oil and Mining Ministry, and a member of the forum’s executive council, highlighted advances in the country’s gas industry in recent years, thanks to development of strategic alliances.
Sosa added that as from December this year, Venezuela would export gas to Colombia and later to other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, as reported by the Oil and Mining Ministry.
The forum, which is composed of Qatar, Algeria, Bolivia, Russia, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Libya, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, and the United Arab Emirates, provides 42% of gas globally and 70% of gas reserves.
The Netherlands, Irak, Oman, Peru, and Norway take part as observers and maintain gas reserves.
