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.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
