Abstract: Last month, a ruptured pipeline in northern Colombia spilled 20,000 gallons of fuel into the Caribbean Sea and created a localized environmental emergency. Authorities allege that the spill was caused by a failed criminal attempt to siphon oil from the pipeline. How big of a problem is the theft of oil, fuels and electricity in Latin American and Caribbean countries? In which countries is the situation most critical? What types of entities are behind the theft, and what policies and practices should be implemented to stop this type of criminal activity?
