US, Venezuela in talks for fresh oil sanction exemptions 

Reuters exclusively reported that Venezuela and the U.S. have progressed in talks that could provide sanctions relief to Caracas by allowing at least one additional foreign oil firm to take Venezuelan crude oil for debt repayment if President Nicolas Maduro resumes negotiations with the opposition in Mexico. 

Market Impact

Earlier this year, U.S. officials drafted a wide proposal to ease sanctions on Venezuela’s oil sector, which would allow more companies and countries to import its crude if the South American nation moved toward a free election. The  proposal included reframing oil sanctions on Venezuela by amending existing U.S. executive orders or issuing new ones so buyers in Europe and other regions could resume imports of Venezuelan oil in a structured, organized way.
