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.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
