For more than a century Venezuela’s fortunes have been linked to its vast oil reserves. But amid a profound political and economic crisis, Venezuela’s oil industry is buckling under the intense pressure of heavy financial stress and deteriorating energy infrastructure. Venezuela’s downward spiral has opened doors for international actors like Russia to create an increasingly complex situation.

What’s next for one of the world’s most oil-rich countries? Join the Atlantic Council Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center and Global Energy Center for a timely conversation on Venezuela’s declining oil industry, the increasing presence of Russia and China in the country, and what lies ahead.
