U.S. Okays $20.8-B Claims vs Venezuela In Citgo Auction

A US court has approved claims by 17 Venezuela-linked creditors, including ConocoPhillips, Rusoro Mining, and Koch Industries, to get proceeds from a coming auction of shares in the parent of Venezuela-owned oil refiner Citgo Petroleum to satisfy claims for expropriations and debt defaults, as reported by Marianna Parraga and Gary Macwilliams for Reuters.

The list, which reduced the scope of the claims to $20.8 billion from the $24 billion sought by creditors, comes after a court officer excluded arbitration awards and court rulings that had failed to satisfy the court's requirements on time.

The Houston-based refiner operates an 807,000-barrel-per-day refining network, 38 terminals, six pipelines, and supplies 4,200 independent retailers.


First bids for the shares are due on Monday, with a second bidding round to come later this year. A final decision on the winners is still months away, with awards requiring approval by the US Treasury Department, which has protected Citgo from creditors since 2019.
