The Deputy of the National Assembly (NA), Luis Stefanelli, warned about the serious situation and danger in the El Palito and Cardón refineries, in the states of Carabobo and Falcón respectively.
The member of the Energy and Petroleum Commission of the NA, denounced that in both industrial concerns there is a lack of skilled hands and negligence, which makes the refineries a great threat to their workers and the inhabitants of the surrounding areas.
“El Palito has been causing serious pollution problems to Morrocoy National Park. Every accident like this one causes systematic spills that attempt against the natural life in this National Park”, he said this Saturday through his personal Twitter account.
Likewise, the parliamentarian explained that the frequent starts and stops every few days in the machinery, in addition to the fatigue of the materials, can make the units explode.
The representative for Falcon State called this situation a “disaster” and warned that it compromises the safety of those directly involved.
“It configures a serious crime by the management and even more so the PDVSA’s board of directors, due to criminal negligence. They will no longer be able to say that they were not alerted”, he concluded.
“Configura un delito grave sobre la gerencia y más aún la directiva de PDVSA, por negligencia criminal, ya no podrán decir que no estaban alertados”, concluyó.
