PUNTO FIJO, Venezuela (Reuters) - Distillation unit number five at Venezuela’s key Amuay refinery, the crisis-wracked country’s largest, is out of service, according to a union leader and worker at the complex.

Production at the 655,000-barrel-per-day (bpd) refinery which is run by state oil company PDVSA [PDVSA.UL], is at 120,000 bpd, according to one of the sources, who added that two distillation units remain active.
