Prior approval by the attending dignitaries to the multilateral meeting, the head of State mandated the Ministers of energy of the Member countries conducting a preliminary study. So supply would be guaranteed for 50 years, since in each block reserves are estimated between 10 and 20 thousand million barrels of crude oil, said the Venezuelan President. The block would be in charge of a company Grannacional and the quantities of petroleum that are pulled out will be exported to the different refining and distribution centers that owns Petrocaribe in Jamaica, Cuba and Dominica, among other countries, to meet the demand of crude oil and byproducts in the Caribbean and Central America. He also raised, that those countries which do not have experience in the energy field, sent to Venezuela young students so be prepared and they can organize its state oil company. To this is added as noted by the Bolivarian Agency, Chavez, announced at the V summit of Petrocaribe, the consumption of urea in the region It amounts to more than 200 thousand tons per year; so he emphasized the need to advance the work planned for the construction of plants of fertilizers in Nicaragua, Dominica and Cuba, to meet the demands of the Caribbean arc. Based on this figure, we should establish bilateral agreements within the framework of Petrocaribe, he said, in order to address the shortage of fertilizers which affects some signatory countries of the agreement on energy cooperation, and that influences food production. In this sense, Chavez said, currently provides for the construction of three factories of fertilizers: one in Nicaragua, next to the refinery the Supreme dream of Bolivar; another in Dominica, and finally Cuba, next to the complex refiner of Cienfuegos. We must think in the consumption of the region. From Cuba we can carry urea to Haiti, and from Dominica can take to neighbouring countries.
