Dominican Today: Dominican Shell’s “continuous plots” hinder Petrocaribe oil pact, official says

August, 21 – 11:29 AM 
SANTO DOMINGO. The Cabinet-level minister Miguel Mejía said the company Shell’s “continuous plots” have prevented the full compliance of the Petrocaribe agreement between the Dominican Republic and Venezuela.

He said Shell, the State’s equal partner in the Dominican Petroleum Refinery, always imposes its criteria in fuel imports.

Mejia, who was part of the delegation which accompanied president Leonel Fernandez to the Petrocaribe Summit held early last week in Caracas, said though the agreement allows the country to import up to 50,000 barrels of oil daily under financing, it has only obtained some 27,000 barrels.

He said in the chief executive’s recent trip to Carcass it was agreed that the Hacienda Ministry would assume the formal handling of the two-nation Petrocaribe agreement.

Mejía said Dominican Republic’s only benefits from Petrocaribe are financed petroleum and finished products, not the access to the pact’s other energy security initiatives. and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
