On Saturday, Washington granted Chevron a license to restart some operations in Venezuela, which makes it possible to increase production in fields operated jointly with PDVSA and sell oil to American refineries. The proceeds would be used to pay off PDVSA’s debt to Chevron.

A spokesman for Chevron said in a statement that the company has regular meetings with PDVSA and government representatives, within the norms established by the US government. He declined to comment on the contracts.

Representatives of Venezuela’s oil ministry and PDVSA did not respond to requests for comment.

El Aissami said in a tweet that the agreements would “boost the development of joint ventures and oil production”, without elaborating.

Chevron has partnerships with PDVSA on four fields, whose total production has plummeted to about 50,000 barrels a day from 160,000 in 2018, according to Bloomberg calculations from company data.

The joint ventures have the capacity to increase production to as much as 200,000 barrels a day by the end of the year, according to one of the people.
