About New York SME Organizer of the annual CTMF Conferences
Join us at SME's 7th annual Current Trends in Mining Finance Conference. NY SME is a section of Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) that dates back to 1871 when a handful of mining engineers in New York City founded the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineers (AIME).

What Happened: On Thursday, March 14, 2019, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) amended General License No. 7 (GL 7), which authorized certain transactions and activities with Citgo Holding, Inc. (CITGO) and PDV Holding, Inc. (PDVH) that would otherwise be prohibited by US sanctions toward Venezuela. The amended and superseding General License No. 7A (GL 7A) extends the expiration date of one authorization that allows certain transactions and activities with CITGO and PDVH, from July 27, 2019, to at least September 14, 2020, and possibly longer.
The Bottom Line: Recognizing that CITGO and PDVH have longstanding complex commercial relationships with many parties, including large multinational companies, OFAC has extended the authorization that allows certain transactions and activities with CITGO and PDVH to provide for the maintenance of CITGO and PDVH operations and relationships that are based on long-term planning and contractual commitments.
