President Lula Will Check Brazil’s Research on Antarctic Base

Comandante Ferraz, the Brazilian base in the Antarctic The president of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, is expected this Friday, February 15, in Punta Arenas, extreme south of Chile, before his flight on Saturday to his country's Antarctic base "Comandante Ferraz", reports the Chilean press.

According to Brazil's consulate office in Punta Arenas, the Brazilian president has on several occasions planned to travel to Antarctica but other pressing business has postponed his trip. However on this occasion the Brazil's leader will pay a visit to the base mounted by Brazil in the Antarctic Peninsula in 1984.

The delegation coming with Lula includes the ministers of Defense,  and of Science and Technology and the Commander of the Brazilian Navy. They will be joined in Punta Arenas by the Brazilian Ambassador in Chile, Mário Vilalva.

On Friday evening a reception has been scheduled for local authorities in the Cabo de Hornos hotel and early Saturday the party leaves, weather permitting, for the airstrip of Chile's Presidente Eduardo Frei base and from there by land or helicopter to Comandante Ferraz.

Lula will be shown around the base by the head of a team of Brazilian scientists who are working on several research projects on meteorology, continental and marine geology, oceanography, biology, astrophysics, geomagnetism and nuclear geophysics.

At midday he's scheduled to have lunch on board the Antarctic support vessel Ary Rongel. Late afternoon the delegation should be back in Punta Arenas and early Sunday will begin the return flight to Brazilian capital Brasí­lia.

Lula da Silva is the second Brazilian president to visit Comandante Ferraz, the first was Fernando Collor de Mello who spent three days in Antarctica back in 1991.

    To the idiot : “Your Papa speaking”
    Not very smart……junkie.

    Since when Halliburton is researching and exploring for….oil or gas ?????

    It is a DRILLING company. Therefore oil companies from whatever country simply BUY their DRILLINGS products !

    Halliburton DOESNT explore, produce or sell oil or gas !

    No doubt that the apparent missing files can therefore be only a PURE BRAZILIAN INVENTION AND A BRAZILIAN LIE….as usual !

    YOUR PAPA
    THE info you are talking about is in brazil office of ibama

    as for as top secret every one knows where the oil is in brasil as the rich are getting in place to buy all the land up it is under .

    in BP and PE states you can see it out near pombao land has been up for sale for years is now sold to msome person out in SP state

    as far as Halliburton and its business sence it is CYA

    look to the pay that brasil pays its people for doing the same work than take a look at what HALLIBURTON pays them

    then speak of non-corrupted ways of doing business .

    FYI why would a brasilian company want a US company to hunt for oil if they are soo good finding themselves

  • Your Papa speaking

    Hey Bo-shiiter
    What do you think happened with the top classified computer information that disappeared from the Halliburton office in Brazil, containing ALL the information and precise location of the mega fields of petroleum discovered by Petrobras a few months ago. I’m sure you have full confidence on Halliburton ethics and non-corrupted ways of doing business, which I am sure match YOU way of doing business in Brazil!!!
    I really wish the government down there would deport your asssss back to Mississippi where you belong, Boy! Come home to papa Boy. These brown skinners are no good for you.
