PW Editorial Position

Petroleumworld has, as its main objective, to inform and transmit opinions on the World and Latin American countries of petroleum and energy issues, which could affect world markets, as well as on those world events, which influence our national energy sector. Petroleumworld also pays attention to the international political, economic, and social events, which could have a bearing on the world of energy and our civilization. There is a close connection between those types of events, as illustrated by the situation in Iraq. Our information is and will be factual. Editorials and commentaries, on the other hand, can include subjective ingredients from the Editor or from whoever are the authors of such contributions. We recognize that opinion should be plural and, as far as possible, based on public knowledge. Our editorials represent our position on issues of general interest and are of our sole responsibility. We cordially invite our readers to contribute their own views, which will readily published and which will be of the responsibility of the author. In such a manner Petroleumworld is a forum in which all issues of interest can be freely discussed.

Energy and Petroleum activities are intimately related to politics. Today this is truer than ever, as shown by the increasing role of the Ministries of Energy and Mines in the operations and commercial sectors of the petroleum industry. As an example, the recent political and organizational decisions taken on Venezuela`s Oil Company or PDVSA strongly influence their overall performance and the place of the company in the international petroleum community. Our mission includes the analysis of the consequences, which those decisions will have for our country and for the world petroleum industry. We, at Petroleumworld, feel free to express our opinions and ask our readers to feel free to give us their comments.
