Gas leak is reported in flexicoker unit at Amuay Refinery
Workers reported no injuries in the occurrence on Tuesday
The failure took place in a gasification transfer line in the direction of the flexicoker reactor. It was noted that the load would be transferred to the delayed coking unit, from 15,000 to 42,000 barrels per day.
Workers indicated that the repair of the affected line in the flexicoker unit is "complicated."

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.
