WASHINGTON, D.C.--The Trump administration is discussing whether to renew a license allowing Chevron Corp. to continue operating in Venezuela despite U.S. sanctions on the country's oil sector, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on July 9.
The waiver issued by the U.S. Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control will expire on July 27.
"It is under discussion," Kudlow said. "I don't know about the license. That will be determined in the future. It's under discussion right now," he said.
Kudlow heaped praise on Chevron, calling it a "fabulous" energy company with an "illustrious tradition" in Venezuela.
Renewed and earnest discussions of energy policy bode well for natural gas as a bridge fuel.
