venezuela's state-owned oil company PDVSA said on Tuesday to be on alert for the recent attack against a fuel storage plant in Ayatawa, a Colombian town near the border.

In an interview with Venezolana de Television, Barrientos said that a shortage in gas supply registered in the country's eastern areas was due to internal adjustments in a plant. However, he urged the people to be on alert to any suspicion of sabotage.

"The counterrevolution is not quiet and will be doing things," stated the official, who assured that a lot of progress has been achieved in the field of security in PDVSA, a strategic company for the South American country.

Barrientos stated that the Venezuelan storage plant in Colombian territory boasts a fuel delivery program, including special prices to counteract the high level of smuggling of this essential item between the two neighboring nations.
