After the 6.9 Richter earthquake that affected the Region of Valparaiso at 6:38 p.m. and caused the interruption in the electricity supply, Aconcagua Refinery proceeded to a thorough inspection and testing of its units before starting the departure of the Plants, in order to verify that all of them are fully complying with the safety, operational and environmental standards required for their full operation.
Standardization of operations is a gradual process, with the expectation of full normalization of operations for weekends.
Meanwhile, the Quintero Maritime Terminal is preparing to start operations in the coming hours, as weather conditions allow.
It should be remembered that during this stage larger torches than usual could be produced. These constitute a security system of the refinery and should not generate concern in the community.
Meanwhile, the delivery of products through the oil pipelines and the cargo yard of Aconcagua Refinery remains normal.
