The Amuay refinery in Venezuela, one of the largest in the world, will remain shut for another day or two after being closed because of a massive explosion yesterday that has so far killed 39 people and injured dozens more. Energy Minister Rafael Ramirez says no production units were affected, and nor are are there plans to halt exports, which means that the blast should have little impact on fuel prices.
