Obama visit could include accord on gas supplies

Monday, April 29, 2013


Costa Rican Environment Minister René Castro announced that two key discussion points for the upcoming visit next week of President Barack Obama include US-backed local hydrogen production and a Central American agreement to import natural gas from the United States under Cafta.

Costa Rican officials plan on showing Obama their progress on experiments using hydrogen fuel for local transportation.

Supported by the Environment Ministry and the National Oil Refinery, researchers have tested hydrogen in traditional combustion engines.
