Colombia: new gas pipeline to Venezuela

The decision was made following meetings held in Bogota over the last few weeks by delegates of PetrÌ_leos de Venezuela (Pedevsa) and Colombian petroleum company Ecopetrol, Venezuelan ambassador to BogotÌÁ Carlos Rodolfo Santiago said. “Now, only technical issues remain, as Presidents Hugo Chavez and Alvaro Uribe have already made the political decision,” Mr Santiago told reporters. The $300-million project involves a 200-km long gas pipeline from Colombian subsea wells offshore the Guajira peninsula to Maracaibo, to supply the region, where there is plenty of oil, but lack of gas.
