dc.description.abstract Just months after pledging to build a long‐dreamed‐about "Nicaragua Canal," the government of President Daniel Ortega is now turning its attention to another expensive megaproject: a Venezuelan‐backed oil pipeline and refinery scheme called the Supremo Sueño de Bolívar (Bolívar’s Supreme Dream). This article discusses the plans to fund and subsequently build the project, breaking it down in three steps. Not only has skepticism arisen given Chavez's track record of unfulfilled but promised infrastructure projects, but environmental concerns have also been voiced over the planned location of the refinery. en_US
