Curacao to choose new refinery operating partner by November

WILLEMSTAD - Curacao will start evaluating up to 10 proposals from energy firms interested in becoming a partner in the Caribbean nation’s 335,000-barrel-per-day oil refinery, according a statement on Tuesday by the government owned Refineria di Korsou.
 
The company said it has signed non-disclosure agreements with 12 companies, which it did not name, and expects to reach an agreement with a potential partner by November.
 
The Isla refinery, operated by Venezuela’s state-run PDVSA under a contract that will expire at the end of 2019, has been largely idled this year due to lack of crude following U.S. sanctions on PDVSA.
