Venezuela's oil sector is in freefall, but where will it stop?

On this week's podcast, Francisco Monaldi , the Latin American energy policy fellow at Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy, tells Meghan Gordon and Brian Scheid that Venezuelan output may decline another 400,000 b/d before the end of the year.

Monaldi talks about Citgo's future, the likelihood of sanctions following the firing of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and what a PDVSA default means for the world market.
