(AP) Venezuelan officials say the Amuay refinery where an explosion killed 42 people and injured more than 150 resumed operations Friday.

The accident had nearly paralyzed work at the oil installation since a gas leak touched off a huge explosion early Saturday.

Amuay is one of the largest refineries in the world and is part of the Venezuelan state oil company's Paraguana Refining Complex, which includes the adjacent Cardon refinery.

Paraguana CEO Jesus Luongo says operations were started gradually and safely on Friday.
