Barcelona, VENEZUELA:  Venezuelan SINCOR refinery employees work at the Jose plant in Barcelona, east of Caracas 26 May, 2006. Though it is a major player within OPEC (Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries) and is hosting the organisation's next meeting on June 1, Venezuela's oil production difficulties are dampening the effect of President Hugo Chavez's flamboyant style and rhetoric. Chavez is also likely to trumpet his policy of providing cheap energy to deprived sections of society both at home and abroad, with beneficiaries to date including parts of the United States, as well as Cuba and parts of the Caribbean. Analysts note this clearly political strategy has set Venezuela apart from its fellow OPEC members. The country is already the group's only Latin American member, although Bolivia earlier this month expressed an interest in joining.
