Thread: Disaster in venezuela

  1. #41


    I would say that Venezuela is better off than Poland because they have no winters and people can produce all they need in their yard all year round. One of my daughters is living on an island in the pacific ( almost same latitude as Venezuela and they produce almost all they need ( except rice ) for a family of six themselves on a small patch.
    When one has a banana-, breadfruit tree, coconuts, avocados, mangos, and other fruits plus chickens, life is a dream, if you get up before sunrise and go to sleep at sunset.
    Must agree they go sometimes fishing together with friends and a tuna guarantees some families their deepfreezer full with meat.
    That makes probably a difference, with inland Venezuela, but in general in those warm countries producing food ( except in urban areas, is not a major problem ).

    Some people who have no experience always know best of course....

    Ps joint the third house i built on those islands, one full 20 ft (approx 30 metric tonnes of wood !) container of wood, took me and four others one month to erect the main building. The terraces and gangways around the house are the work of the houseowner and his crew )

    One can build quite inexpensive when one masters the skills....

    Border dispute. Guyana’s oil development plans have been challenged by its neighbor, Venezuela, which claims 40% of Guyana’s territory in a border dispute that dates back to at least 1889. Several tribunals have since settled the argument in Guyana’s favor. However, Venezuela, with its financial turmoil and Guyana’s oil discoveries, has renewed its claims, which extend into the Atlantic. The Financial Times wrote that “the issue is as sensitive to the Venezuelan public as the Falkland Islands/Malvinas are for Argentina.” The UN has appointed Dag Halvor Nylander, the Norwegian diplomat who brokered peace in Colombia, to help resolve the current dispute.
    No turning back. Aside from Exxon Mobil, several operators are evaluating their prospects in Guyana. DrillingInfo reported that in 2013, Repsol (with partner Tullow) completed seismic surveys totaling 4,060 km2 in its Kanuku Block and plans an additional 4,000 km2 of 3D seismic there. Eco Atlantic plans a seismic survey in the Orinduik Block. Meanwhile, Tullow and Kosmos Energy are drilling in neighboring Suriname.
    Avoiding the “resource curse.” The Guyanan Minister of Natural Resources, Raphael Trotman, said in a television interview that his country could be susceptible to the “resource curse” brought on by sudden oil wealth and potential corruption. Like many underdeveloped countries, Guyana has no experience and few resources to handle taxation, regulation, and environmental control related to energy production.
    Guyana has sought advice from the International Monetary Fund and the U.S. State Department to draft legislation for a fiscal regime for oil revenues, environmental regulations, and government oversight. The country also has engaged the Mexican Petroleum Institute to train welders, drillers, and other oilfield workers. Minister Trotman has emphasized Guyana’s plan to establish a sovereign wealth fund, like Norway’s, to devote oil revenues to “transformational national projects that will benefit generations to come.”

    Looks like a war for oil in Venezuela. Guaido will allow Exxon and US Big oil interests into Venezuela. A disputed piece of land between Venezuela and Guyana called Essequibo Region is full of sweet crude may be a main objective in ousting Maduro. More power for the Petro Dollar.
