ORANGE CITY - Prime Minister Mike Eman (AVP) claims to be surprised by the statements of Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez. This was during the climate summit in Copenhagen said that the Netherlands and the U.S. on the ABC islands are arming in preparation for a possible invasion of his country.

"A few weeks ago we were approached by the Venezuelan government. They were interested in sending a trade mission to the ABC-islands with the energy ministers to discuss possible cooperation in oil company PdVSA. Since we were obviously very positive about it as a major oil producer that such fuel could make to WEB "said Eman.

Initially the mission was called off, but the prime minister says the Dutch government to have given that it still could be. "Since they responded very positively," said Eman. "I saw in any case no voltage from Venezuela." The Prime Minister said that he did this time, as indicated by the Dutch State Secretary of Defense, Jack de Vries (CDA). "Against the State, I said we just got good vibes from Venezuela and they wanted us to discuss possible cooperation on energy."


Eman indicates that Venezuela has repeatedly recognized that the border treaty in 1977 they together with the Kingdom of the Netherlands had signed. In this border treaty, the exact sea and air borders to the south of the ABC Islands and north of Venezuela indicated. The Bolivarian Republic of Chavez, according to Department of External Relations two years ago have ratified these limits. Eman: "I therefore do not doubt that what the territory is divided into that agreement. I have confidence in the interview that the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs today met with the Venezuelan ambassador in the Netherlands believe that clarity is also below from the side of Venezuela. This weekend we hear about the outcome of this conversation. Then we know or we have to contribute to the conversation so as to soothe the minds. "The Aruban prime minister would hold for the moment that Chavez's recent statements in Copenhagen especially power display will show. "I think you should especially in this light that we see and mutually beneficial to clarify each other will create."

ARUBA

Negotiations stalled with Petro China

December 19, 2009, 11:54 (GMT -04:00)

ORANGE CITY - Aruba has not yet received word back from oil company Petro China in the negotiations surrounding the acquisition of Valero refinery. It says Minister Mike de Meza (AVP) Finance, Utilities, Energy and Communications.

Since the visit of the Meza to the U.S. office of Petro China in New York and the subsequent conference call, the Chinese state oil company has never heard of. "I think this is regrettable," said Meza. "But we regularly send messages to their side with the message that we want to continue negotiations like." Aruba being, and Petro China agreement on several issues including the payment of profits tax, the maintenance of the Aruban law, where and when arbitration should be applied and the priority of Aruban workers. Major points of contention are the degree of investment by Petro China in the refinery and the refinery or whether or not full seasons with the surgery.

Premier Mike Eman (AVP) points out that a takeover begins and ends with Valero. "They own the refinery. Only when we got a signal from which they indicated their progress with Petro China we went with them to the table so the discussions from that time would run simultaneously. "Eman says also that the Aruban government simultaneously to both the Dutch and Mexican and Brazilian governments have indicated that Aruba would be interested in an acquisition or a partnership with Valero by PEMEX or Petrobras. "This fact was known to them and it could be a message from one of them may come back." The prime minister points out that it is currently negotiating with a difficult deadline. Valero also ask why he wants to negotiate with Petro China and possibly other partners to give more time before deciding to permanently close the refinery. Eman remains hopeful. "There are several options. Valero has so far not ruled out the mogleijkheid to work on Aruab to put on a back burner. There is also the possibility that they were going to only store, and then again to produce when the situation better. "

ORANGE CITY - Prime Minister Mike Eman (AVP) says that Aruba is not at all costs going into the sea with Petro China. He said this in response to reports about the alleged role of PetroChina and its parent company China National Petrolium Corporation (CNPC) in the genocide in Darfur, Sudan.

Petro China, despite an obvious stop in the negotiations with Aruba, the main candidate for the refinery in San Nicolas to take over. "China and companies from that country will, now they increasingly operate in other countries, to questions about human rights. We view this situation, because we do not do anything at all costs. Our priority is to open the refinery, while maintaining certain principles such as human rights. According to Eman rights were not discussed. "But indirectly it when we talked about the number of Chinese laborers who were here to work. We want job security for our people. Even if we provided that no more will safeguard the standards valid in the United States and Europe. "

"Doing business with all developed countries'
According to Minister of Finance, Utilities, Energy and Communications Mike Meza is the government of Aruba "aware" of the messages. "We screen the company also himself. The fact is that PetroChina does business in and with almost all developed countries, the United States, Netherlands, Germany, France and Spain to Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela. It is our country and through mutual agreements and legislation to prevent disasters occur or that companies make abuse of a country. We are now working through contracts to prevent this happening in some other countries have done. "If there really is one of human rights abuses by business and the Netherlands and other countries here to speak, Aruba also is acting appropriately, De Meza said. He published several reports in the media and it is difficult to verify them all. "We keep in touch with international organizations that monitor the situation."

Great post TM...I was reading up on similar stuff when i looked at your post...

I would like to know when these talks were,and with whom?Very interesting

Extraction of gas
The Premier will also be raising the extraction of natural gas with Minister Verhagen, which is currently taking place in Aruba’s territorial waters. “Oil Company Chevron is currently searching for natural gas in an area named Cordon 3, just along the border of Aruba’s waters.

Of course, this could indicate a discovery of something within our waters.” In this, Eman states that according to international regulations, certain options are possible if natural gas is discovered at a border territory.

“One of the options implies that both countries make contact to come up with an agreement on the division of revenues, if there is an indication as to how the gas is divided in the sea floor of the relevant countries.

If an agreement cannot be reached, one will have to consider drilling themselves as a gas deposit does not stop at a border. Raw material will also be removed from our territory if any drilling is done on the other side. Of course, we cannot simply just stand there and watch.”

Therefore, Eman wants to approach Venezuela together with the Dutch Minister Verhagen to make agreements on gas extraction in the area. The Premier states that there had been previous conversations with Chevron in Venezuela.

Valero Confirms Talks For Aruba Complex Sale
               

 By Steve Gelsi
MarketWatch Pulse
NEW YORK -- Valero Energy Corp. has confirmed that it's in talks to sell its 235,000 barrel-a-day refinery in the Caribbean nation of Aruba, according to reports late Tuesday. Recently-elected Aruba Prime Minister Mike Eman said through a spokesman that Valero is in talks with PetroChina, but the refining giant declined to identify the prospective buyer. The facility, which accounts for about a third of Aruba's gross domestic product, has been on the sales block for more than a year.

ORANJESTAD — The Aruban government spoke with representatives of Valero from San Antonio and with the Venezuelan oil company PDVSA.

The delegations of both companies had arrived on the island with private jets. Immediately after arrival, they had supposedly left for the Administration office for conversations with Premier Mike Eman (AVP) and Minister of Finance, Utilities, Communication and Energy, Mike de Meza (AVP). It was reported that representatives of the government had also flown in from Venezuela. The delegations had left again after the conversations.

Earlier this week, the government of Curaçao had cancelled an encounter with the government Venezuela and representatives of PDVSA and the regime of Hugo Chávez at the last minute, with the request whether the visit of the neighboring island could be adjourned until the beginning of February. It was also remarkable that PetroChina, until now the most important candidate for take-over of the refinery, was not present with the conversations. However, it is known that PetroChina and PDVSA have an agreement to deliver oil against a favorable price.

Valero Confirms Talks For Aruba Complex Sale
               

 By Steve Gelsi
MarketWatch Pulse
NEW YORK -- Valero Energy Corp. has confirmed that it's in talks to sell its 235,000 barrel-a-day refinery in the Caribbean nation of Aruba, according to reports late Tuesday. Recently-elected Aruba Prime Minister Mike Eman said through a spokesman that Valero is in talks with PetroChina, but the refining giant declined to identify the prospective buyer. The facility, which accounts for about a third of Aruba's gross domestic product, has been on the sales block for more than a year.

Petrobras still interested in refinery

January 19, 2010, 12:20 (GMT -04:00)

ORANGE CITY - The Brazilian state oil company Petrobras has again shown interest in the Valero refinery in Aruba to take over. "The interest has come from both sides", said Prime Minister Mike Eman (AVP). "We have through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Netherlands again sent the message that we remain interested and that the refinery is still available."

Petrobras in 2008 and 2009 twice expressed interest in taking over the refinery. Both times, however, bounced off the acquisition. First by a fire in one of the vacuum units of the refinery and then by the decision of the Brazilian oil company to temporarily invest in their own country.

Subsequent purchaser
Amigoe reported last week that the Venezuelan oil company PDVSA has shown a serious interest in the refinery. Current owner Valero seems to turn not completely bored with the idea of a possible restart. "They come back to Aruba this week, so we at least for the period in which there is no restart, make arrangements with each other," said Eman. The prime minister points out, however, that these contacts may have motives other than a restart. "That you never know. If they negotiate a set of conditions, might as well be that they want just by selling package together with the refinery. So you never know when they next one buyer to the negotiating. "

Wait -
Premier Eman with Petro China claims that "many ups and downs are. "We thought we had a breakthrough and that would be signed, and then it got quiet again. It seems to take decisions for companies such as Petro China Beijing to be taken anyway. This is a rather complex decision making and facilitate the process not really. "The prime minister acknowledges that Petro China, but also PDVSA until recently, was probably waiting because they wanted to wait until the price for the refinery was also dropped. "Everyone knows that the oil market at present is not good. If you buy now, it means that you sit on a refinery that can be restarted only when it is financially feasible. The company now buys the refinery, will bear the same costs that Valero has now. That includes 600 to 700 employees might not be able to start immediately. "Eman For it is important that there is certainty about the future of the refinery and its employees.

Other future refinery
The prime minister points out that the Aruban government Valero four times so far had not been given its own employees to dismiss. During the upcoming three-day visit to Valero Aruba, that from tomorrow, Eman wants representatives of the oil company once again to urge the workers on the payroll account. Against Valero has said that the dismissal of the government employees would otherwise look for continuity of the refinery. "There are many people who think that Aruba should be looking to another development. But most people find that, while there is a chance that we all have jobs to do to save those 600 people. Within that context is everything done to the refinery a future, "says Eman.

MP Andin Bikker (PDR) is a debate in parliament with the government including the future of the refinery. He is deeply concerned about employment, now redundant in many other sectors.

Valero CEO Martin Parish signs the agreement, while Premier Mike Eman (AVP) happy watching.

ORANGE CITY - The Government last night and Valero have reached an agreement allowing the nearly 700 employees of the refinery in San Nicolas until June of this year to retain their jobs. The government also eliminated the 1 percent tax on exports BBO-off, allowing Valero waives the arbitration that it had brought. The U.S. oil company also bulk 200 million florin in the national treasury. In a sale is agreed that Valero another 10 million U.S. dollars 'bonus' pay, says Premier Mike Eman (AVP) Amigoe this morning.

The deal is about 85 percent of the total amount that the government still wanted Valero get cashed. With the payment of 200 million florin, the government in any way reduce any tax claims. These are the amount still owed on Valero Aruba bbo. The oil company had 200 million florin already put away in an escrow account in anticipation of a possible loss of the arbitration case. In this case also came late last year to a partial ruling, which Valero was still obliged to overdue dividends and exchange commission meeting. This was an amount of 35 million florin involved. Against this ruling was appealed, however Valero. The oil company had no profits to pay because of the still existing tax holiday.

Last week it was already known that the government again and Valero intensive talkers on the future of the refinery, which was closed last year. Last night around eleven hours were in the Government Office the Prime Minister, the ministers Mike Meza and Benny Sevinger, Valero's vice president of regional operations Refinary Martin Parish and CEO Valero Aruba Ray Buckley, after one days of negotiations until a new agreement. Eman says is somewhat a battle for the arm to keep the agreement because he first wants to submit to Parliament. The agreement does indeed affect the legislation. Thus, the PDO-law be modified so the 1 percent tax on exports expires. Also, the IPC Act (tax credits for imputation PLCs) are adjusted. Now the tax exemption (tax holiday) for Valero expires, the agreement is that the refinery will fall back under the tax and profit tax that they pay from 7 to 11 percent (the "standard profits tax rate is 28 percent). Last night, in any case agreed Eman said that Valero annually 10 million U.S. dollars to pay profit tax, if the oil company does not sell Aruba refinery. If the refinery is sold, then a new owner every year 15 million U.S. dollars to pay profits tax. The government also wants the settlement agreement is governed by law. This agreement must also be approved by parliament. The ruling party has a majority in the States also.

Prime Minister Eman does not know why Valero after years of conflict with the previous MEP government now come to agreements and a renewed interest in the Aruba refinery. "It's not that the situation on the oil market has become more optimistic and therefore the future of the refinery. The atmosphere in the present is certainly more flexible and constructive and not as hostile as ever. "
