Workers at Amuay refinery, in Falcón state, northeast Venezuela, reported on a gas leak from the flexicoker unit. There were no injuries. However, the unit that processes 62,000 barrels of oil per day came to a standstill.

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."
