Just readings some interesting news articles on Venezuela and problems with their oil production and fuel refinery issues I believe that are on Curacao and wondering if any impact has occurred on Bonaire? I know during our February 2018 vacation lots of news about failure of maintaining of the storage location I believe was in the news so just wondering if things have been worked out or still concerns and issues with the current situation on island. Also any news on the huge tug that caught fire last year in front of us--still burned out at the dock or has it been repaired?

I am also curious in what insights Bonaire insiders have. But, a quick internet search found this story, which I found interesting:

Yesterday while diving at Candyland, the first tanker I have seen in over a month pulled in to Bopec. I could hear-and feel-every beat of the propeller, and those of the two tugs as they passed by. It arrived empty, so maybe ConocoPhillips just extracting its assets?
