A giant fireball has enveloped the Chevron works

Wales - Of course there have been no actual sightings of a vampire-masked Steven Donziger - or Karen Hinton - skulking in the shadows by the Welsh site.

But the former Texaco refinery was the scene of a dramatic blast on Thursday evening amid suspicions 'corrupt Ecuadorean saboteurs' had suddenly struck.

The explosion at Chevron's crude processing plant has seen the death of two oil tanker drivers in a freak collision around 6.20pm.

The catastrophe has sent into turmoil Chevron's $1.73bn sale of the facility to Valero.

Agreement in principal earlier this year saw Chevron ditch this chunk of UK business along with all their UK and Eira gas stations.

The decision came amid Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborn's introduction of a punitive oil and gas tax on supermajors' British incomes.

Lago Agrio's Judge Juan Nunez is 69.

But pulling out of the UK may always have been a Chevron goal as rumors flew about Ecuadorean misfits' plans on embezzling $18 billion from the San Ramon corporation's coffers by targeting its operations abroad.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
