Venezuela’s loss of production volumes was the largest global unplanned fall in crude oil output in 2017, a trend that has continued to intensify into 2018 and has the potential to get significantly worse in the coming months. According to the latest data, Venezuela’s crude oil production now stands at its lowest level in more than 50 years.

Venezuela continues to be one of the largest suppliers of oil to the United States, sending about 1.4 million barrels per day (220 × 10 ^ 3 m 3 /d) to the U.S. Venezuela is also a major oil refiner and the owner of the Citgo gasoline chain. In October 2007, the Venezuelan government said its proven oil reserves was 100 billion barrels (16 × 10 ^ 9 m 3).

Oil production figures released by OPEC on January 18 delivered bad news for Venezuela: from January to December, production fell by 629,000 barrels per day, or 28 percent—a loss virtually unprecedented for a country not experiencing an external shock like war or economic sanctions.

There is a global shortage because of sanctions on Iranian oil, while lower levels of production in Canada, Mexico and Opec member countries has also had an impact.
