Venezuela's oil drilling in October slipped 1.8% as appears from data supplied by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in its monthly report.

The numbers of the oil cartel, according to market secondary sources, show that Venezuela produced 2.33 million barrels of oil per day (bpd) in October 2012, compared to 2.38 million bpd drilled in October 2011.

In October this year, however, the Venezuelan monthly output grew 18,300 bpd, or 0.7%, compared to September 2012.

The OPEC report also included the production numbers furnished by Venezuela, under which the domestic production in October 2012 stood for 2.7 million bpd, 33,000 bpd or 1.17% less than 2.81 million in September.

The OPEC production in the aggregate amounted to 30.9 million bpd, including oil production from Iraq. This means that Member States would not observe the oil production ceiling at 30 million bpd that had been agreed by the organization in its last meeting held in the middle of 2012.

Demoting the environment

At the recent UN climate summit President Nicolás Maduro gave a speech on global warming highlighting the fact that "Capitalism has ignored over decades nature's capacity to load and recover," and, accordingly, "if we want to change climate, we need to change the system."
