HOUSTON, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Venezuela's Paraguana Refining Center (CRP) is processing 713,000 barrels of crude per day (bpd), or 75 percent of its capacity, according to an internal document from state-run PDVSA seen by Reuters on Wednesday.

This is up from May, when it was processing 590,000 bpd at 62 percent of its capacity. The complex is slowly returning to normal rates after it was impacted by a severe accident in 2012 that curbed output. (Reporting by Marianna Parraga; Editing by Terry Wade)
