In January, the state-run oil company resumed exports of diesel
Petróleos de Venezuela (Pdvsa) delivered in May two shipments of low-content sulfur diesel to British BP and operator Gunvor in one of its terminals located in east Venezuela, according to an internal paper of the state-run oil company, Reuters cited.
Venezuela resumed the export of diesel in January after having used its diesel production for years to meet the domestic market in view of growing demand from thermoelectric stations.
The shipments in May followed open market takeover bids. In April, Pdvsa sold similar shipments to Gunvor and US oil holding Chevron, according to Pdvsa export monthly report.
The report added that ConocoPhillips, Cuban Cupet and Cubametales, operator Delaney Petroleum Co, Jamaican Petrojam and Nicaragua also received crude oil and virgin naphtha from Venezuela in May.
