Besides Capacity cut (which is not expected impact coker) the article also mention PDVSA & HESS JV canceled its T/A scheduled work. Probably comes from PDVSA side where they also canceled T/A – Maintenance work on Petrozuata (now PetroAnzoategui) Upgrader (revenue shortfall and reduced production has them pushing production).

 

Bueraucrats and Financial types (&/or Upstream types as well) never seem to learn that Refineries have no control over downtimes – you either schedule it or it falls down and then cost twice as much and takes twice as long to fix than the shorter scheduled T/A would have.
