The reform of the Law on Special Contribution for Windfall and Exorbitant Oil Prices was enacted on Thursday, as it was published in Venezuela's Official Gazette No. 40114.

The reform, passed at a special meeting at the National Assembly on Wednesday, provides that oil-related contributions to the National Development Fund (Fonden) shall be made whenever the price of the oil barrel exceeds USD 80, rather than USD 70, as provided before the reform. Consequently, Venezuelan state-owned oil company Pdvsa and the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) will receive a higher flow of petrodollars.

Official estimates indicate that the sale of US dollars to the central bank will spike to USD 2.47 billion this year because of the reform. Meanwhile, Pdvsa will manage additional USD 1.6 billion.

The Central Bank of Venezuela lost USD 3.5 billion

More than USD 3.5 million of Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV) money were lost in their way to the Dominican Republic. Some Venezuelans are among the 5,000 victims of the bank's collapse. And not even the entity responsible for overseeing Venezuela's monetary policy was spared.
