Catalytic Cracking Unit at Amuay Restared, PDSVA Says

April 28 (Bloomberg) -- Petroleos de Venezuela SA, the state oil company, restarted the catalytic cracking unit at the Amuay refinery in Falcon state following maintenance work that began in February, the company said today in an e-mailed statement.

The company also restarted treatment plants connected to the unit, which processes 108,000 barrels of oil a day and 64,000 barrels a day of gasoline, according to the statement.

A catalytic unit at Amuay refinery broke down after attempts to restart an air compressor following programmed maintenance, Caracas-based newspaper El Universal reported April 26, citing union leader Ivan Freites.

That unit may remain paralyzed for at least two months while the compressor is repaired, El Universal cited Freites as saying.
