    wholly owned by Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, said it
    plans to start a unit at its Corpus, Christi, Texas, refinery

    shutdown” will begin at 8 a.m. local time and will take 24
    hours, according to a filing today with the Texas Commission on

    a day, according to the U.S. Energy Department.
