A revision to the Law on Oil Windfall Revenues for the purpose of selling US dollars to the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) has been announced by Venezuela's Minister of Petroleum and Mining Rafael Ramírez.

The senior official said that the action entails "increasing contributions to lower tensions in the speculative sector." Based on estimates produced by state-owned oil company Pdvsa, the US dollar sale has climbed to USD 2.4 billion.

Ramírez commented that a set of actions were on their way and would be announced in the days ahead.

The oil minister said that the revision will allow for further allocations of funds for social development and the treasury. This is a step forward in the sale and distribution of US dollars, Ramírez noted.

Upon the implementation of this measure, fewer oil revenues will be allocated to the National Development Fund (Fonden), fueling in this way the central bank's international reserves.
