US production more than Venezuela in three different areas

Venezeula is producing about 1.24 million barrels of oil per day in August. This is half of the oil production that Venezuela had in 2016.

The US has two states and the Gulf of Mexico that is producing more oil than Venezuela.

Texas is producing 4.4 million barrels per day
The US offshore (mostly Gulf of Mexico) is producing 1.66 million barrels per day
North Dakota is producing 1.27 million barrels per day in July

  1. Not so easy. They would have to secure the rest of the country in order to secure the oil fields and provide safe living for the Chinese oil workers and materiel they would have to bring in to make that work. “They can be damaged, but there is too much to wreck” Wrong. They’ve ‘wrecked’ the lot. Lack of maintenance and upkeep is all that is needed to do that trick and that is exactly what has been going on over there. Plus, it is a tropical environment. That helped a lot, too. “Instead, General Jose, or maybe Colonel Juan, whose small branch of the military is the only bit even close to being well run, he gets some visitors who arrange some loans so he suddenly has a lot of resources. And they’ve also had some discussions with a neighbouring country or two who suddenly arrange a few things. And a purely internal power change occurs. ” Like how the coup in Thailand was financed. The financing that Godfree is dead set denying about per his Wu Mau orders from Beijing. That is possible. But not probable. And the US doesn’t have to intervene directly, just finance rebels to shoot missiles at the oil platforms/tankers. That ups the game for the Chinese to land a military presence. That gives Trump the cassus belli to cut off more trade or impose secondary sanctions on China or some such. Monroe Doctrine is part of America First ideology, after all.

  2. Foreclose means “send in some adults to run the place like it was a major oil producing nation or something, not a college socialist debating club” And there will be something left, there will be oil fields. The whole point is that the oil fields are not being exploited properly. The only way the oil fields disappear is if they start to pump the oil again. (They can be damaged, but there is too much to wreck.) And of course you don’t “send in” anyone. A helicopter landing and a bunch of hard cases in sunglasses and suits get out and walk into the presidential office… that only happens in movies. Instead, General Jose, or maybe Colonel Juan, whose small branch of the military is the only bit even close to being well run, he gets some visitors who arrange some loans so he suddenly has a lot of resources. And they’ve also had some discussions with a neighbouring country or two who suddenly arrange a few things. And a purely internal power change occurs. It might have happened already (that missing million barrels of oil per day is a LOT of money and power going begging) except that, as ape points out, the USA would have views on the subject.

  3. When China tries to “foreclose” on Venezuela they will have a first hand encounter with the Monroe Doctrine and that exemplar (/s) of virtue Donald J. Trump.

  9. An interested outside party supplying resources to the general who thinks (and may well be correct) he would make a better leader is a scheme going back at least to the earliest recorded history, and probably to before the rise of true humans. And yes, you’d need to fix up the nation wide problems. The alternative of having the oil fields declare themselves a separate country based on a 17th century claim that nobody has ever heard of is a possibility, but one that doesn’t seem commonly successful. But the point is that Venezuela is not a desert hellhole. The population was able to feed itself and have a moderately stable nation only a couple of decades ago. The surrounding nations have, if not their act together, then certainly semi-functional economies and politics. We know that these people and this environment can function (at least to the point where oil wells can be operated) because they’ve done it before. It’s just that oil is, politically speaking, poison. Like some poisons a small amount just adds to a dish (I say with the taste of Sichuan peppers and Dave’s Insanity Habanero sauce still lingering from breakfast) but if you try to live on it you’re going to get messed up. (And speaking to Thais about their politics, it’s more complex than you describe. The city/country divide there is several decades in the making and while it can be exploited, it’s not a foreign invention.)
