Curacao's PDVSA Isla refinery working at minimum, awaits Venezuelan crude





By Reuters

Petroleumworld 06 19 2018

The 335,000-barrel-per-day Isla refinery operated by state-run oil firm PDVSA in Curacao is working at minimum capacity while waiting for new shipments of Venezuelan crude, four sources close to the facility told Reuters on Monday.

Only a few units at the refinery have been operating since U.S. producer ConocoPhillips moved to seize PDVSA's Caribbean assets in May. No shipments of Venezuelan crude have been sent to Isla since late April and none were planned for this month, according to PDVSA internal trade documents seen by Reuters.

But new crude cargoes could be received by Isla through ship-to-ship transfers and add to existing inventories, which would be processed in the coming weeks, the sources said.
