Venezuela For Setting Oil Prices in Euros

02 June 2006 , 12:57458
Venezuela has backed a proposal to sell oil in euros instead of U.S. dollars, Energy and Mines Minister Rafael Ramirez said on Thursday.

The remarks came ahead of a meeting of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in Venezuela's capital on the same day.

Ramirez, who is also the president of the state oil company PDVSA, said "If a market in euros is created, with the euro as a reference, we could send our supplies so they are sold under this (currency)."

Responding to Ramirez's remarks, Edmund Daukoru, president of OPEC, said some member countries had raised the possibility but added that they had not formally tabled the proposal to the bloc.
