VENEZUELAN OIL REFINERY ON FIRE

VENEZUELAN OIL REFINERY ON FIRE. A view of the fire at Venezuela’s El Palito oil refinery in Puerto Cabello in the state of Carabobo on Sept 20, 2012. The fire, which hit two fuel tanks at the El Palito processing plant during a strong thunderstorm late Wednesday, has since been brought under control. This is the second oil refinery fire within a month in Venezuela. El Palito is one of Venezuela's six largest processing plants, with a processing capacity of 140,000 barrels of crude a day, and supplies fuel and other oil products to the central and western regions of the country via a network of pipelines.
