U.S. Firms Accused of Buying Natural Gas from Known Mexican Smugglers

Oilprice.com -- For five years Pemex Exploracion y Produccion has accused US companies of enabling a black market in natural gas liquids to exist by knowingly buying stolen gas from Mexican bandits. The organised group steal gas from the Burgos field in the Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon states of northern Mexico, and transport the fuel across the border in hijacked tankers. So far they have continued to elude army troops and helicopters deployed to defend the field.

Attorney James Teater said of the criminals that “as long as they see a market for stolen Pemex condensate, they will find a way to steal it.”

From the article, "....they have continued to elude army troops and helicopters deployed to defend the field."

Article stated they use hijacked tankers to transport the natural gas.

This entire thing seems a bit far fetched. Army troops with helicopters are unable to locate hijacked tanker trucks????? There has to be more to this. Bribes? Corruption? OK, now it makes sense.
