CARACAS -- Petroleos de Venezuela, or PdVSA, will take the catalytic cracker unit at its 140,000 bpd El Palito oil refinery offline for 25 days for maintenance starting this week, state news agency AVN reported.

Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez said on August 25 that El Palito was processing 129,000 bpd of crude and that Venezuela's refinery network had overall output of 1.2 MMbpd.

PdVSA has enough inventory to maintain fuel supplies to the central regions of the country served by El Palito, AVN said, citing comments from refinery manager Jesus Sanchez.

I noticed you follow very closely the situations at Venezuela refineries, but I would like to read news from refineries in Colombia. Last week it has been an accident in the Cartagena refinery and I was expecting to read something about what happened in this column.

Cheers
