The numbers reported directly by state oil company PDVSA stood slightly higher at 396,000 bpd, up 4,000 bpd compared to July.
Venezuela’s main industry could be set for another boost following the arrival of an Iranian very large crude carrier (VLCC). The tanker allegedly had its Automatic Identification System tracker switched off en route before docking at the Jose Antonio Anzoategui oil terminal in east Venezuela on Sunday.
The Iranian ship reportedly unloaded 500,000 barrels of condensate at the Petropiar joint venture. ■
