Venezuela Welcomes Bolivia, Ecuador to OPEC

02 June 2006 , 09:27654
Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez has lobbied members of OPEC to extend its membership.

Mr Chavez called for Ecuador, which has large crude oil reserves, to return to the group after 14 years of absence.

He also asked to consider Bolivia, which has brought its gas industry under state control.

OPEC is due to vote on Thursday whether to change oil production levels, but is expected to brush off Mr Chavez's plan to lower them.
