A new incident took place at the facilities of Venezuelan state-run oil company Pdvsa on Sunday. Three workers were injured.

According to information revealed by the oil company, the event occurred at 4:50 a.m. on Sunday in Pdvsa's upgrader of Petromonagas, a joint venture attached to the upgrading division, Production Department of the Orinoco Oil Belt (FPO).

The incident was attributed to "a mechanical failure caused by pressure" during cleaning of tank 31-TK-3101. The event "led to a leak of non-inflammable biodegradable solution."

Firefighters and members of the health and safety team responded 40 minutes after the incident, thus avoiding damages to the facilities and the environment, Pdvsa explained.

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
