Political & Civil Unrest - March 25

London, Mar 25 -- A press report, dated yesterday, states: Bunkering operations in Venezuelan ports have not been affected by recent government actions, a spokesperson from Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A. (PDVSA) told Bunkerworld this week. On Sunday (Mar 21), Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez ordered the Navy to take control of seaports in states with major petroleum-exporting installations. It was part of a bid to assert greater control of installations run by opposition-ruled state governments, according to Reuters. It followed a move by the Venezuelan Congress that passed legislation letting the central government take over roads, ports and airports if state leaders fail to adequately maintain them. Venezuelan bunker supplier PDVSA Deltaven, the marine fuel arm of the state-owned oil company, told Bunkerworld that "bunkering continues as normal". (See issue of Mar 24.)
