UNSUITABLE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACKNOWLEDGED
CARACAS---Venezuela s government
has confirmed that it is considering
the sale of its oil refining and distri-
bution network in the US amid a
worsening economic crisis.
Analysts said the proposed sale
reflects the socialist government s
urgent cash shortage.
Last week, the state-owned oil com-
pany Petroleos de Venezuela SA sig-
nalled its interest in a finding a buyer
for US-based Citgo Petroleum Corp
in a bond prospectus. On Tuesday, Oil
Minister Rafael Ramirez said Venezuela
would sell Citgo if the price was right,
but added that the government was
not in a hurry to make a deal.
The company, believed to be worth
as much as US$15 billion, has long
been an unloved stepchild of the rev-
olution. The late President Hugo
Chavez called Citgo a "bad business"
that contributed to the tax coffers of
the United States and made no profit
He repeatedly floated the idea of
selling the company, which operates
refineries in Texas, Louisiana and Illi-
nois and sells fuel through thousands
of gas stations. Rival Gulf Coast refin-
ers are seen as potential buyers.
Venezuela s government has long
used its US company as a political
tool. Chavez had Citgo distribute dis-
counted heating oil to low-income
American families in a high-profile
programme aimed at criticising Wash-
ington s approach to the poor. More
than 1.7 million Americans have
received oil from Citgo to keep warm
during the cold winter months,
according to the subsidiary.
Many states initially rejected the
programme, but it was embraced by
some. Former US Rep Joseph Kennedy
II spoke out in its favour, saying
Chavez cared about the poor at a time
when the world elite turned a blind
Venezuela, an Opec member that
has among the largest oil reserves in
the world, is struggling to overcome
an economic crisis after years of over-
spending that s fuelled inflation now
surpassing 60 per cent. The govern-
ment has restricted Venezuelans abil-
ity to obtain dollars as oil production
has declined, forcing imports to fall
and leading to record shortages in an
oil-dependent economy where man-
ufacturing is thin.
Outside analysts say President Nico-
las Maduro needs to loosen currency
controls to restore balance to the econ-
But the government s willingness
to sell Citgo suggests a strong aversion
to taking such dramatic steps, said
Risa Grais-Targow, an analyst at the
Washington-based Eurasia Group.
Juan Carlos Sosa, editor of the oil
trade publication Energizing Ideas,
said the sale of Citgo would give the
government financial breathing space,
but could rob the country of a major
source of income over the long term.
Much of Venezuela s oil goes to
domestic consumption and to supply
agreements with China, Cuba and
other Caribbean allies. The barrels
sold by Citgo in the US market rep-
resent the only oil sold with net
income, Sosa said.
"If Citgo is sold, we ll have to rely
on a third party to sell that oil, and
if that party does not want to buy our
oil, it will be much more difficult to
place because there are very few
refineries worldwide capable of pro-
cessing most Venezuelan crude, which
is heavy and extra heavy," he said.
