Workers at Amuay refinery, in Falcón state, northeast Venezuela, reported on a gas leak from the flexicoker unit. There were no injuries. However, the unit that processes 62,000 barrels of oil per day came to a standstill.

The failure took place in a gasification transfer line in the direction of  the flexicoker reactor. It was noted that the load would be transferred to the delayed coking unit, from 15,000 to 42,000 barrels per day.

Workers indicated that the repair of the affected line in the flexicoker unit is "complicated."

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
