This looks like a bug to me:

Setting a PGSERVICE, and also
setting PGSERVICEFILE (as a fully qualified name):

export PGSERVICE=prod
export PGSERVICEFILE=/home/mynick/.pg_service.conf

then psycopg2 still complains about not having the service, because it reads the default system pg_service.conf file

(perhaps psycopg2 is skipping dot files?)

    Psycopg doesn't use PGSERVICE at all (and I didn't even know about them). It is the libpq to handle them.

    You should look into the libpq why the dotfile is ignored.

Psycopg is the most used PostgreSQL adapter for the Python programming language. At the core it fully implements the Python DB API 2.0 specifications. Several extensions allow access to many of the features offered by PostgreSQL.
