Of course, there is only one slight problem:
The state-owned Cuban oil company says the country may have more than 20bn barrels of oil in its offshore fields - more than double the previous estimate.Glad to see that at least someone is taking energy sufficiency issues seriously. As capitalist countries become more socialist, why not the socialist ones becoming more capitalist?
Cubapetroleo's exploration manager said drilling in the offshore wells would begin as early as the middle of 2009.
Such reserves would place Cuba among the top 20 oil producing nations.
Yes, the insanity of the US-centric environmentalist movement is clear to see.
