Major oil deposit found off Cuba
Drilling of an exploratory well in Cuba’s virgin Gulf of Mexico waters that could make the Communist nation an oil exporter and undermine the U.S. embargo has been completed.
The senior Cuban official said Repsol was analyzing samples to determine their quality and whether commercial production would be feasible.
Repsol believes up to 1.6 billion barrels of oil may be located where the drill bit went down 18 miles off the northwest coast of Cuba in waters one mile deep.
Yet another reason for the Bushies to invade?
