Nicaragua government cuts ribbon on new fuel storage tanks
The Sandinista government has inaugurated a new petroleum industrial complex in the Pacific port town of Corinto that dramatically increases Nicaragua´s ability to receive and store Venezuelan oil.
The industrial park, named “From Bolívar to Sandino,” was built as part of the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA) and features massive storage tanks that can hold a 17-day reserve supply of fuel for the country´s energy needs.
