MIAMI, United States .- According to the internal documents of the Venezuelan petroleum company PDVSA, Venezuela has resumed the supply of crude oil to Cuba at a time when the processing of oil in the refineries of the South American country continues to decline, Reuters reported.

The shipments, which started in June and continued until August, amounted to 4.19 million barrels of Venezuelan rough Mesa 30, a type that is used to produce fuels in national refineries and to mix it with heavier oil for export.

The South American country that has been supplying oil to Cuba through a bilateral agreement since 2000 does not have the money to pay for spare parts, equipment and raw materials needed to counteract the decline in oil production in its own refineries.

According to Reuters, oil production, the backbone of that country's economy, fell again in August, bringing the annual output of the OPEC countries to its lowest level since 1950.
