PDVSA’s Refining director and CRP’s general manager, Jesús Luongo, said that “the event originated in an exchanger located on top of a fractionating column and it was put under control quickly due to the prompt action of the oil firefighters”. Luongo informed that the unit was stopped as a preventive measure following operational protocol.

The Amuay Refinery maintains normal operations and the refinery complex continues with the processing and routine delivery of products for the domestic and the international markets.
