The nationalization of oil supplies refers to the process of confiscation of oil production operations and private property, generally in the purpose of obtaining more revenue from oil for oil-producing countries' governments. This process, which should not be confused with restrictions on crude oil exports, represents a significant turning point in the development of oil policy. Petróleos de Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA) has dominated oil and gas production in Venezuela since the industry was nationalized in 1976. It controls some of the world's largest proven reserves of oil. In 2016, the company was producing about 2.5 million barrels per day. Particularly when salaries in Norway, which is not a European Union member, are 50 percent higher than the average in the EU. That Norway should be so wealthy is no surprise. It is the world's fifth-largest oil exporter, with annual oil revenues of around $40 billion, In the late 1950s, very few people believed that the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) might conceal rich oil and gas deposits. However, the discovery of gas at Groningen in the Netherlands in 1959 caused people to revise their thinking on the petroleum potential of the North Sea. But anyone who objectively compares especially Norway to Venezuela would find the two countries are quite similar and that in fact Norway is far more socialist under conventional definitions of that term. Venezuela and Norway both have abnormally large oil sectors, nationalized oil reserves, and nationalized oil companies. Most oil producing countries have nationalized oil. Mexico, Brazil, Norway, Saudia Arabia etc. We have suffered enough abuse by the big oil majors. They are basically just middlemen contracting out almost everything they do, from finding the oil to pumping it. The US govt could do this just as easily.
