The Government of Belize has been very careful in their position and views towards offshore oil drilling.

So where does Manuel Heredia stand on the issue of offshore oil drilling? For his part, Heredia said his government has not taken a position and they are not considering offshore oil drilling at this time. “I have not said yes or no to offshore oil drilling. Anything that will cause damage to our reef, I will oppose,” stated the Minister. Heredia said that for Oceana to say that offshore oil drilling is catastrophic to the sea, that argument cannot be supported by any evidence. “At this point there is no one from Oceana that can show proof, if anything is done as it relates to offshore oil drilling, that it will damage our reef – there is no evidence of that. They will have to substantiate that if offshore oil drilling is allowed, that it will in fact affect our ocean,” stated the Heredia, who was a fisherman for 30 years.

He didn't get the memo, but UDP are all for off shore drilling and plan to award leases soonest no matter what anyone else says and Heredia will be on board and given his piece, hopefully more than he got when NCL cruise ship was approved at Harvest Caye. More than Puerto Azul will pay out. And a hotel/gambling complex on the atoll with a race car track and large airstrip will not harm the reef?
