In late 2012, the state petroleum company PDVSA was engaged in talks with China concerning the possible construction of three coke-burning power plants at PDVSA's José Antonio complex despite extensive backlash.[1] However, further details regarding any such plant are lacking, as there is no recent news coverage of the plant and no mention of it on sponsor company's PDVSA's website.[2] It appears to have been abandoned.
