Evidence of Sabotage

The full report of the government’s investigation of the Amuay refinery explosion can be downloaded from the Sevicio Bolivariano de Información (Sibci) web page.

After pages of pictures and analysis of how bolts and screw are supposed to look like if they become unloose by natural fatigue, the important part comes at page 29: the bolts in the failed pump that caused the “abrupt” gas leak that eventually exploded, were “intentionally loosened.”

Oil Minister Rafael Ramírez concludes from this “intentionality” implied by the report that the opposition must have sabotaged the pump. There are images of the pump room taken by a security camera, but unfortunately no images of the saboteurs coming in or out of the room.
