Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and Global Energy Center for a timely conversation on the downfall of Venezuela’s oil sector and what may be in store in the future.
Amid a profound political and economic crisis, Venezuela’s oil industry is buckling under the intense pressure of mismanagement, financial stress, and a degraded energy infrastructure. The acute downward spiral of the country’s energy industry is yielding far-reaching ramifications domestically, with the presence of foreign actors like Russia further adding to the complexity.
What does the future hold for oil production in one of the world’s most oil-rich countries? As the drumbeat of US sanctions ramps up, is an oil embargo next? And what does the demise of the industry mean for the country and its people?
**David Goldwyn, President, Goldwyn Global Strategies
**Francisco Monaldi, Atlantic Council Author
**Jason Marczak, Director, Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, Atlantic Council
**Additional Speakers to be Announced
The event will mark the launch of the Center’s latest policy brief, The Collapse of the Venezuelan Oil Industry and its Global Consequences, authored by Francisco Monaldi.
Registration and breakfast will open at 8:30 a.m.
