is that this is not a stand alone gas escape, wind afcetfed spark initiated explosion dissipating it’s energy to the atmosphere. This explosion, from the photographs, is a violent explosion, including a pressure vessel containing hydrocarbons. Flying debris, shrapnel if you like, creating damage well without a directionally driven gas plume. This could result in secondary uncontrolled situations. The RADIUS of damage, 400m., is more than likely a correct assumption. The issue here is not the damage you see but that which cannot be seen on a photo. Days ? Maybe but at 1% capacity. Months ? More than likely.And the Head of PDVSA says it’ll be online in a couple of days !!!!! That’s the las thing a man in that position should be saying.And if maintenace is the issue, critical issue I mean, Venezuelas’s hydrocarbon industry is buggered well in to the future. No different from the roads, bridges, Conviasa and so on. And I haven’t had my breakfast yet !
