Jesús Luongo, General Manager at Paraguaná Refining Complex (CRP), north-west Venezuela, estimates cooling of the burning tanks resulting from the blast of refinery Amuay last Saturday will end in no more than two days.

In an interview with state-run TV channel VTV, Luongo explained that the fire brigade was still spraying foam on the tank walls so as to lower fuel temperature inside the tanks.

"We have been taking the temperature of the tanks walls, yet we ignore the temperature inside. Our estimates are based on considerations arising from conversations with our technicians. We want to reduce temperature below its ignition point," said the general manager.

Luongo added that strong winds have slowed the process as it removes the sprayed foam from the surface it is applied.
