The United States will reinstate some sanctions on Venezuela’s oil industry due to the “lack of progress” on the path to free and transparent elections, a State Department spokesperson told Reuters on Monday.

This is a temporary license that expires this Thursday and has eased sanctions on Venezuela’s oil and gas sector since October.
