Venezuela-run Isla refinery in Curacao not operating

WILLEMSTAD - The Venezuelan-run 335,000-barrel-per-day (bpd) Isla refinery in Curacao is down after an operational problem triggered a blackout.
 
Refinery spokesman Earl Balborda said this on Monday to press agency Reuters, adding he expected “progress” to reactivate operations this week.
 
Isla was only producing some 50,000 bpd before a problem at the unit that supplies the refinery with compressed air, water and power, Balborda added. The refinery has been working far below capacity due to insufficient deliveries of crude from Venezuela, where oil production has fallen.
 
Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA did not respond to a request for comment.
