Curacao refinery resumes work after eight-month stoppage

WILLEMSTAD - The 335,000-barrel-per-day (bpd) Isla refinery in Curacao has resumed work, the facility’s management said on Tuesday, after eight months of paralysis caused by a dispute between its operator, Venezuela’s PDVSA, and producer ConocoPhillips.
 
The refinery, which has been looking for a new operator to run the refinery starting in 2019, restarted one of its crude distillation units and its thermal cracker, it said in a release.
 
“Both units are producing gasoil and fuel oil,” it added.
