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.

Alarmed because of the emotional breakdown suffered by his ally and his destiny; Fidel Castro requested asylum for deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in Madrid back on April 11, 2002. "The story had been much darker and more entangled than what some people's imagination has wanted to believe in and disclose," former Spain's President, José María Aznar, upholds in his autograph book published by late 2013.
