Hooray for Hugo Chavez: U.S. "Environmentalists" Defined

Caracas, Nov 9 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan state-run Petroleos de Venezuela S. A. (PDVSA) will install submarine production facilities offshore in the east of the country, to exploit crude and gas reserves, sources of the sector said here Friday. ... the Great Marshal Sucre Project will develop 1.2 million cubic feet of gas and 18,000 daily barrels of condensed oil in the north of the Gulf of Paria. ... The objective of using this submarine technology resides in minimizing the environmental impact, reducing the placing of platforms on sea level, as well as the decrease of risk of oil escapes. ... The specialized equipment, located more than 250 meters (820 feet) deep, are completely automatized by means of the use of robotics, which will allow monitoring the process at a distance with the effectiveness for the personnel participating in the operations. [emphasis added]
The robotic equipment, located more than 250m (820-ft) deep, could be adapted to provide a filtered natural gas product directly, making it a nifty submarine refueling station for subs with natural gas fuel cells , CO2 sequestration tanks, and a DHRFC (disphotic homing retractable fuel coupler). If all U.S. Navy subs are nuclear, whose subs would be refueled? It cannot be Cuba (no subs). Might it be for a deep-diving, drug-running submarines?

Since a U.S. company is responsible for the undersea project can we dismiss this far fetched development? I believe so. What really worries me, however, is this:

PDVSA - Petroleos de Venezuela SA/CITGO, is responsible for the efficient, profitable, and dependable exploration, production, refining, transport and commerce of hydrocarbons. PetrĂ³leos de Venezuela S.A., the state-owned corporation of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, ... is deeply committed to environmental protection and its main objectives are to foster the harmonic development of the country, to guarantee sovereignty of national resources, to increase endogenous development... source

Why can't the U.S. develope its undersea oil and gas resources this way? We know who is blocking us, don't we? We get 15% of our oil from Venezuela. What are environmentalists?
Environs = geographical region; mentalist = (definition found here) entertainers whose performance appears to be based on "psychic" abilities, featuring the ability to read minds, project the mind to alter the state of matter, foretell the future, and see distant and hidden objects. This branch of magic is referred to as "mentalism." People like Al Gore and Barbara Streisand are making the U.S. dumber than the young Bolivarian Republic. Shame, shame!

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela's relationship with Cuba has been symbiotic, which is very smart. The two nations barter Venezuela's cheap oil for Cuba's relatively available educational and medical faculties. Teachers and doctors are exchanged for energy. The contract above was awarded to Cameron International Corporation (Houston, TX), which does sophisticated energy projects worldwide.
