Venezuela Plans 4 Months Maintenance work August July 10, 2008 VENEZUELA: Venezuela will carry out four months of maintenance and expansion work starting in August on the cat cracker at its 640,000-barrels-per-day Amuay oil refinery, an official said on Friday.
State oil company PDVSA considers the planned work a “major” operation, a senior refining official, Jesus Luongo, told reporters on the sidelines of a Colombian-Venezuelan meeting on energy cooperation in Punto Fijo in western Venezuela. Amuay and the neighboring 300,000-bpd Cardon refinery together form the giant Paraguana refining complex. Over the last few years, stoppages due to incidents such as power outages and maintenance programs have lowered the OPEC nation’s output from its refineries, industry analysts say.
