Pdvsa reveals losing operational capacity in Venezuelan main refineries
Based on a report produced by state-run oil holding Petróleos de Venezuela (Pdvsa), Amuay refinery is processing 345,000 barrels per day out of a capacity of 645,000 barrels
The report came five months after a blast that unleashed the worst tragedy in the Venezuelan oil history.
The Venezuelan government has provided several dates for the full restoration of Amuay. This, together with neighboring Cardón, comprised the Paraguaná Refining Center (CRP). The complex has not gotten back to normal. As a result, Venezuela needs to keep on importing fuel.
Amuay refinery is processing 345,000 barrels per day out of a capacity of 645,000 barrels. Cardón, for its part, is refining between 194,000 and 310,000 barrels per day of crude oil, out of a capacity of 310,000 bpd, the report of January 18 found.
In this way, the CRP is processing around 551,000 bpd, out of a total capacity of 955,000 bpd.
No pellets, tear gas or 9mm firearm projectiles were enough. Several unpublished videos confirm what some witnesses had already warned in the very afternoon of February 12: that day, the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin) shot a different type of bullets whose ammunition shells were picked up by the very officers who triggered the weapons.
