United States temporarily authorises transactions involving oil, gas, and gold in Venezuela

This includes a six-month General License No.  44 (“GL 44”) Authorizing Transactions Relating to Oil or Gas Sector Operations in Venezuela (available here), which will only be renewed if Venezuela meets its commitments under the electoral roadmap as well as other commitments.
