Financial impositions placed upon Venezuelan state run-oil company Pdvsa by the Executive Office have constrained the oil company to prioritize its fiscal contributions, even above long overdue operating liabilities. 

Sources from the oil sector have informed that Pdvsa will repay debt and make payments to suppliers once it has made its fiscal contributions for fiscal year 2012, which, to date, amount to USD 18.6 billion, even thought they were initially estimated at USD 15.7 billion in the country's budget.

Although Pdvsa has not disclosed any official information about the amount of its liabilities, debts to goods and service suppliers many of which are related to core activities have continued growing, sources from the oil sector informed.  

Payments in dribs and drabs

By the end of 2011, Pdvsa's debts to providers had grown 22% as they jumped from USD 10.13 billion in 2010 to USD 12.37 billion 2011.

Regarding FY2012, oil industry sources explained that "Pdvsa's debt payments have been small, and liabilities are large." They added that efforts have been made to find a payment mechanism different from cash.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
