Organized Crime: Cocaine & Crude

Borderland Beat: Video from Vice
An excellent video from Vice. "Cocaine & Crude", is about cartel diversification from drug trafficking into oil theft. It begins in Tamaulipas, most of Mexico's extensive oil reserves are off the coast of Tamaulipas,  the state is the historical center for the country's petroleum industry beginning more than 100 years ago.

With the state being rich in oil reserves, combined with lucrative drug corridors, add in corruption being the norm,  it is little wonder organized crime violence is an untamed beast.

Zetas are the only cartel that began with a business structure of 50% diversification; knocks offs, extortion, kidnapping, sex trade, versus drug trafficking.  Oil alone, could surpass drugs in the future as most profitable portion of Zetas activities.

The reporter takes an amazing excursion to a Pemex site, with begins with soldiers listening to narcos radio communications.  They are traveling to a site where an illegal tap was installed the night before.

  12. There has been too much violence. Too much pain. But I have an honorable compromise. Just walk away. Give me your pump, the oil, the gasoline, and the whole compound, and I'll spare your lives. Just walk away and we'll give you a safe passageway in the wastelands. Just walk away and there will be an end to the horror.

  14. the treviños associates imprisoned in texas are not golfos by any means.
    but sure the zetas are not the only ones, pemex will deal to anyone to cash in on the driving of pemex to insolvency, bankruptcy and firesale, the cartels as middlemen just move product here and there for the real crooks stealing pemex to sell it away

  15. I work for a major company in the oil and gas industry. We do business in refineries all over the world. I've personally worked everywhere from the north pole to the middle east. I can say without a doubt that north east Mexico is the scariest environment I've ever worked in...and I've worked in some messed up places. Worn-torn Iraq, Sudan, Columbia, even the Niger Delta. None of those places even compare to working in NE Mexico in the oil and gas industry. The cartels have total control and 100% impunity. It's the only place I've ever worked in the entire world where just doing your job in the gas and oil industry can get you kidnapped or killed.

  16. I'm just wondering why a video about mexican cartels starts with a picture of Jairo Orellana-Morales, a guatemalan trafficker who was arrested recently. He's the big lug with shoulder tats

  17. I wondered the same thing..for a second or two.

  18. Grayson? Stock Google Images of cartels? Not exploring the Mexican Military's involvment? Vice....how far you've come........ :(

  19. Why are the cartels even allowed to be a player with Mexico's oil wealth! That belongs to la patria and all of the old retired people who have worked their whole life, and now need medicine and medical help!

  20. The cartels just loot, plunder, and pillage PEMEX's oil/gas but no mention of the American companies who are buying the oil/gas at bargain prices. The CDG factions/ Zetas have no shortage of customers. The cartels aren't the biggest looters of PEMEX though. That honor goes to the PRIISTA and PANISTA gov. functionaries and their relatives.

  21. You can't buy what those worthless humanoids don't steal to sell. It's a region full of thieves, kidnappers, and killers. The lawlessness is sad. And look at the chicken sheet military escorts. You should now understand the balls Mireles et al has. The ADs are the only real men in Mx

  22. the cheapest mexican gasolines and diesel, made the most profit for retirement funds of police officer brotherhoods and city mayors on many US cities, stolen, it was only transportation expenses, maybe a few kickbacks here and there, but all the rest was profit for the well connected, us buyers and resellers of stolen goods, namely pemex products...
    swag anyone? pigs love swag...

  23. 8:24 malinche no seas pendeja! the gabacho are not the victim here, and never have been, you need an education badly, there is nothing more ignorant than apologizing for the gringo, the neo-conquerors of our times only go to mexico to steal all they can, we come to the US to work, the gabacho goes to mexico to rest in paradise, we come to the US to work,
    this is not a pleasure trip for us, for tje gabacho it has been all a vacation, as soon as our governments sell out, they just come and collect the check, tjat is why the mexican government is so well loved by the US GOV, for the ass kissing, the US exploits mexico, and brainwashes a few assholes like you...

  24. It was interesting to watch the video and listen to the z halcones sending messages. The army said " we try to use routes they don't think we will to try and get a positive outcome".

    Much easier to remedy , under the merida initiative , the Mexican Government should ask the USA to supply a plane equipped with a ECM jamming pod for an hour or two. That would jam every form of radio or microwave radiation signals , for as long as the pod was active. Easy then to go in , once they have been located and catch them. Without the comms , even with halcones , the Z are deaf , dumb , and blind

  25. Chivis, could you please write a story about the goings in this video? I'm staying at a hospital looking after a sick loved one, and don't have the internet for videos.

    Thank you so much for your updates. Mexico seems to produce stories that outmatch a lot of Hollywood movies

  26. jajaja I am sorry but that is the purpose of the video. anyway the video is not time sensitive, hopefully your loved one is better soon and you can check the video out. Best regards...

    To the oil refinery employee, I was going to ask the same thing. Drop me a line or two if you would like to share some of your experiences.

    --10 thousand litros for 60 thousand pesos, is about 6 pesos per litro, about 50 cents in dollars, about 20.00 pesos per galon = $1.80 usd...
