    As for gas condensate, it is NOT gasoline. It can be refined into things like high octane gasoline and jet fuel with ease (since it is not crude oil) but it will likely be used as a blending agent to improve flow of Venezuela’s very heavy crude oil in order to boost production.

  • From jumaf3_:

    East African neighbors no longer want to work with Kenya. Museveni has thrown away the Lapset project (useless project) & signed agreement with Magufuli for the construction of 1,445Km crude oil pipeline from Uganda’s oil fields to the port of Tanga. Not even Somalia wants us.

  • From _SirWilliam_:
