  Robert Rapier is a chemical engineer in the energy industry. Robert has 25 years of international engineering experience in the chemicals, oil and . The level of investment in the oil sector is quite low, and this inactivity has translated into stagnation of the proved reserves of natural gas. Moreover, natural gas exports have declined, a nationalization damaged Bolivia’s relations with neighboring markets, particularly that of Brazil. The international petroleum industry is a complex social system with considerable uncertainty about existing structural conditions, particularly from the point of view of a developing country. The “demonstration effect” of oil production nationalizations has been an important source of information about the balance of country-company power.

() to show that leaders nationalize the oil industry when petroleum prices are high as this maximizes the short-term revenues from expropriation and outweighs the potential costs of nationalization.

The process of nationalizing the 21 oil companies and 17 other companies working in the petroleum industry was begun last August when the President promulgated the oil industry nationalization law. Venezuela's oil production reached an all-time high in when the country produced million barrels per day (BPD).

InVenezuela nationalized its natural gas industry. The country officially nationalized its oil industry on 1 January at the site of Zumaque oilwell 1 (Mene Grande), and along with it came the birth of Petróleos de Venezuela S.A.

Prior to expropriation inthe oil industry in Mexico had been dominated by the Mexican Eagle Company (a subsidiary of the Royal Dutch/Shell Company), which accounted for over 60% of Mexican oil production, and by American-owned oil firms including Jersey Standard and Standard Oil Company of California (SOCAL – now Chevron), which accounted for approximately 30% of total production.
