So Aurea, NC and Rio also produce oil.
So do we three nations get a seat on the South American version of OPEC. That could really upset the voting.
I haven't even thought of creating a South American version of OPEC.
The biggest oil producer will probably be Neragua. Not only does it have Patagonian shale oil fields, it has the -- RL -- currently unexplored South Atlantic oil fields (which, if you think about it would've been explored by now if that was all one jurisdiction). Then there's the gas fields in the far south and possibly even Antarctic resource claims. Neragua would also likely be the biggest exporter by value and quantity, though Costa would probably be the biggest exporter by production/consumption proportion.
Calimera with smaller reserves but a hungry, growing economy to feed would probably be a big importer, if not the biggest. Aurea likewise would probably use almost all of its extractions for itself therefore requiring further imports. Same story for New Cat. Rio would also be a big importer as would myself.
Neragua and Costa Fierro would likely be the only two self-sustaining producers. Tayrona would almost certainly readily buy up Costa's oil. Whilst Tay will have resources to the east, they'll be difficult to access and would probably be costlier and off putting to consumers in Tayrona. Like Aurea, it would mostly be self-consumed Exporting from further afield would be costlier and less secure. Calimera would along the same lines be the biggest consumer of Neraguan oil and gas. Tecan, ER, New Cat and even Aurea would be big markets too. Aurea's production would almost certainly be topped up by Ner.
Rio most definitely wouldn't survive on the extractions it produced. Another Aurea/Tayrona type.
The oil we export is mostly from the IRL fields in the Napo region of Ecuador and is cheaper because of its lower quality. However, next year, Ecuador is going to bring the Pungarayacu oil field online which has an estimate of between 4-12 billion barrels of oil.
Also, Tayrona, Colombia also has oil fields so whether or not you make use of them is up to you. They're not very large and produce about 73-123,000 barrels a day.
From a map I saw, pretty much most of northern SA IRL has petroleum. Only Venezuela has a whole lot of it though. The Guianas and northern amazon are expected to hold an amount of petroleum that could supply the small countries for a decade or so but would probably begin to dry up, not to mention de antiquated with all this newfangled technology stuff and hybrid-hoozy ethanol electric machinery.
Least authoritarian in SA... Oh yeah.
Seems Mikterra is gone. He went the way of Quintanilla.
Live from Eastern Central Rio Cana, The newest singer of that popular typical music of the Eastern Central region. The whole of South America and beyond is dancing to it.
