Reuters , Friday 8 Feb 2019

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro warned on Friday that blocking all oil shipments from his OPEC-nation would have “catastrophic consequences” in the wake of crippling sanctions imposed by the United States on state oil company PDVSA.

In a news conference in Caracas, Maduro also said anyone who accepted illegal nominations by the opposition to PDVSA [PDVSA.UL] and its U.S. subsidiary Citgo Petroleum Corp [PDVSAC.UL].

“The economic and social consequences of a total blockade to our oil shipments would be catastrophic,” he said.
