The travails of Venezuela, home of the largest oil reserves perhaps in the world—but it’s thick and requires refining.  Local refinery is busted and unrepaired.  Nearest functioning refinery is in US in the Gulf, but Maduro’s seizure of power in place of Guaido  caused the US to refuse Maduro’s business.   As ever, Cuba’s intelligence ops, who are active and in some areas controlling in Venezuela, are not helpful here.
