DRILL BABY DRILL! Eh, wait a minute............
HAVANA — Cuba on Tuesday announced plans to drill five deepwater oil wells in the Gulf of Mexico beginning this summer, expressing confidence that its efforts will be rewarded with major new energy finds. "We're about to move to the drilling phase," said Manuel Marrero, an official with the government authority tasked with overseeing Cuba's oil sector. "We're all really hopeful that we will be able to discover large reserves of oil and gas," said Marrero, who added that the ventures would be undertaken with the help of unspecified foreign companies. MORE Of course this is with the help of Chinese technology and Cuban oversight. You folks in Florida and especially the Keys have nothing to worry about.
