    Exclusive: PDVSA's Partners Act as Traders of Venezuelan Oil Amid Sanctions-Documents
    Exclusive: PDVSA'''s Partners Act as Traders of Venezuelan Oil Amid Sanctions-Documents - The New York Times

    CARACAS/PUNTO FIJO, Venezuela — Venezuela, its oil exports decimated by U.S. sanctions, is testing a new method of getting its crude to market: allocating cargoes to joint-venture partners including Chevron Corp, which in turn market the oil to customers in Asia and Africa.

    This would not violate sanctions as long as sale proceeds are used for paying off a venture's debts, according to three sources from joint ventures. They said this approach could help Venezuela overcome obstacles to producing and exporting oil.

    Venezuela's oil exports fell 32% last year as the U.S. government blocked imports by American companies and transactions made in U.S. dollars. PDVSA was forced to use intermediaries for crude sales as Washington pressured Venezuela's Indian and Chinese customers to halt direct purchases.

    The sanctions were designed to oust Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro after most Western nations branded his 2018 re-election a sham.

    PDVSA oil exports drop 32% in 2019, mainly due to the blacklisted of oil tankers involved in the shipment of Venezuelan oil. On January 22 Chevron's license to operate in Venezuela expire, and there is a great possibility that the U.S. Treasury department would not renews it. Venezuela oil crisis keeps deepening.

    Oil Is The Only Way Back Up For Venezuela

    There’s only one path to rebuilding Venezuela, and it’s paved with oil. For the time being, that path leads nowhere.

    The key to controlling everything now lies with the National Assembly, the only body with the power to hand out oil licenses—and Maduro’s recent scheme to retake control of the country’s oil may just have been foiled by more Trump sanctions.

    Venezuela is the 12th largest oil producer in the world and home to the world’s largest oil reserves--all of which is irrelevant as long as it remains in the throes of a deep economic and humanitarian crisis amid runaway corruption, a devalued currency and crippling sanctions by the U.S. and the EU.

    Maduro’s attempt to cling to power is relentless, but in his quest this past week to take control of the oil industry, Washington was paying close attention. And now, the rogue president and his government have suffered another major blow, with the US imposing fresh sanctions on seven Maduro acolytes.

    Pompeo after meeting with Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, said that the U.S. would take more actions in an effort to oust the Maduro regime. The National Assembly is the only body with the power to hand out oil licenses, making more difficult for the regime to take control of the oil industry. On January 21, the U.S. blacklisted 15 aircrafts belonging to PDVSA, another blow to the regime.

    US Sanctions Russia’s Rosneft over Oil Ties to Venezuela
    US Sanctions Russia's Rosneft over Oil Ties to Venezuela - Havana Times

    February 18, 2020

    HAVANA TIMES – The United States has stepped up its pressure campaign against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, slapping sanctions Tuesday on Russia’s Rosneft Trading and the company’s president over its links to the Venezuelan government and its oil sector.

    Rosneft Trading is a subsidiary of Rosneft Oil Company that the Trump administration says is lifeline for the Maduro government. All property and interests in the property of Rosneft Trading are blocked, under the order from the US Treasury Department.

    The US warned companies of trying to evade the sanctions and gave them 90 days to close down their transactions with Rosneft.

    “Rosneft Trading S.A. and its president brokered the sale and transport of Venezuelan crude oil,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement. “The United States is determined to prevent the looting of Venezuela’s oil assets by the corrupt Maduro regime.”

    This latest sanctions against Rosneft Trading, is proof that the Trump administration is serious about removing the Maduro regime from power in Venezuela. The knot around Maduro’s neck keeps tightening.

    Maduro regime has not been able to pay CAF outstanding debt, and now it trying to sell shears in CAF to pay its debt. The opposition want CAF to restructure the debt instead of selling the shares.

    The sanctions of Trump administration on PDVSA and strategy of maximum pressure given buyers of Venezuelan oil until the end of May to wind down purchases, caused a rise on PDVSA oil exports in February since Rosneft Trading rush to make purchases ahead of May wind down purchases. India’s Reliance Industries and Nayara Energy, will be reducing imports of PDVSA oil starting in April in compliance with the sanction.

    In the meetings of Trump with Guaido in February, the president of Colombia Duque and the president of Brazil Bolsonaro in March, they have been talking about the strategy to fallow in Venezuela to get rid of the Maduro regime.

    Re: Venezuelan parliament votes to begin impeachment proceedings against Maduro

    The USA are trying again to depose a foreign ruler besides the people of Venezuela hates Guaidó, the world has seen the consecuences of the USA foreign policy (Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc..) . Mr. Trump, let venezuelans decide about his destiny and remove your dirty hands from their country.

    We've seen in Bolivia what happens when USA takes the control. More repression, plunder and violence. Now the MAS is leading the polls, because the imperialism can't stop the dignity of the latin folk.

    So you are a regular little Komsomol wannabe.

    As I thought.


    After he frittered away January, February, and half of March, Trump now says he’ll have done “a very good job” if only 100,000 of us die of COVID-19.

    Because he opposes US global hegemony ?

    The list of US actions he gave is a valid indictment of US meddling. Can't deal with it ? Call him a soviet
    As for arming the Palestinians , including Hamas , well yep. I think their cause of national liberation is just even if the means open to them are so limited as to see them resort to terrorism. Jews resorted to it to under the same circumstances remember ? The sad truth is that it does have an effect
