Who writes this weblog?
After launching the weblog in early June 2007, I noticed that there is quite a lot of interest in South American energy news with analysis.
One of the problems when reading about the region’s energy markets is that the analysis is sometimes one-sided or knowledge of the history is deficient.
Even large multinationals like Repsol YPF forget their history. It wasn’t too long ago when the Spanish major was spearheading with BG and Pan American Energy the $6-billion Pacific LNG project. The only problem with that project was that it didn’t take into account sufficiently the geopolitical dispute between Bolivia and Chile.
Credibility? I’m a journalist who has covered energy matters in European (Spain, Italy and Finland) and South America for 20 and 10 years, respectively. I have a good network of sources.
Irrespective of what is happening in the region, there are always two sides to a story. I try to hear both of them in order to grasp what is possibly going on behind the scenes.
