Russia to drill for oil off Florida coast in Cuban waters
Democrat are still against drilling in US waters off the Florida coast. In fact they are generally opposed to offshore drilling in the fantastic belief that "green energy" will make it unnecessary and also replace all foreign oil. This is one time when I think the Cubans and the Russians are more in the real world.
Russia is to begin oil exploration in the Gulf of Mexico, after signing a deal with Cuba, says Cuban state media.
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin signed four contracts securing exploration rights in Cuba's economic zone in the Gulf.
Havana says there may be some 20bn barrels of oil of its coast but the US puts that estimate at five billion.
