Cooling of tanks in Amuay may end in two days
Lungo stated that the fire brigade was still spraying foam on the tank walls so as to lower fuel temperature inside the tanks
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.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
