HOUSTON, April 15 (Reuters) - The 150,000 barrel per day (bpd) Petromonagas extraheavy crude upgrader operated by Venezuela's state-run PDVSA and Russia's oil firm Rosneft will undergo a 3-week maintenance in June, a source close to the work told Reuters.

"The call for contractors for the Petromonagas' maintenance stoppage was already done by PDVSA. It is expected to start in early June and it will last for some three weeks," the source said.

He added that other two upgraders, Petropiar and Petrocedeno, are also supposed to receive maintenance this year according to PDVSA's schedule, but contractors have not been called yet and there are not specific dates for that work.
