CARACAS, July 18 (Reuters) - Venezuela state oil company PDVSA said on Saturday that maintenance work on the catalytic cracker at its 645,000 barrel-a-day Amuay oil refinery was advancing as planned and would culminate in a week and a half.
PDVSA said in the statement that other processing units at the nearly 1 million barrel-a-day Paraguana refining complex, which includes the Amuay and Cardon refineries, were operating normally.
Workers and a union leader in late June told Reuters the unit had been halted. PDVSA confirmed the stoppage in early July. (Reporting by Alexandra Ulmer; Editing by Digby Lidstone)
