Harvest Natural +8.5%, possibly on Venezuela's receipt of Chinese credits

|About: Harvest Natural Resources, ... (HNR)|By:, SA News Editor

Harvest Natural Resoures' (HNR) 8.5% premarket gain may be attributable to news that Venezuela said China had given the country $5B in credits under a deal reached in September.

Venezuela has received ~$36B from China since 2008 and is paying for it with petroleum exports.

Most of HNR's exploration and production assets are in Venezuela.
