BELIZE CITY, Mon. Feb. 2, 2015–Venezuela has formally suspended shipments of premium fuel to Belize, with the last shipment of premium fuel having arrived last week via Curaçao, on Monday, January 26, 2015.

John Mencias, deputy chairman of Alba PetroCaribe Belize, the joint venture company which Belize and Venezuela had established to manage the PetroCaribe program, told Amandala that the shipment left port on January 22 and arrived in Belize 4 days later, on January 26.

Belize had ordered 9,000 barrels of premium gasoline, as well as gasoil (diesel), regular fuel and kerosene from the refinery Isla, a subsidiary of the state-owned Pedevesa (Petróleos de Venezuela S.A.).

Mencias explained that it is still Puma Energy which is responsible for importing fuel into Belize. They had agreed to purchase all Belize’s fuel imports through PetroCaribe, as long as Venezuela could supply it, but now, since Venezuelan authorities have indicated that they are unable, Puma is able to get premium fuel from other sources, Mencias explained. He indicated that the company may already be moving to do so, but Mencias is optimistic that Puma will get the fuel from an alternate source.

Despite numerous attempts, we could not reach Freddy Flores, deputy general manager of Puma Energy in Belize, to verify if plans are already in place to procure premium fuel from other sources.
