Venezuela. La più grande raffineria del paese blocca la produzione di benzina (Reuters)

A refining unit that turns crude oil into fuel at Venezuela’s largest crude processing facility has broken down, three people familiar with the operations told Reuters on Friday, halting production at the key gasoline producing plant.

The breakdown of the fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) caused the country’s largest refinery, 645,000 barrel per day (bpd) Amuay on the Paraguana peninsula, to halt gasoline production on Thursday, one of the sources said.
