State-owned refinery Petrojam, jointly owned by PDVCaribe, a subsidiary of Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) and the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) will be installing a vacuum distillation unit (VDU) as part of preparations for the reduced sulphur cap of marine fuel by 2020.
A technical team comprising of members from PCJ and Petrojam are already meeting with engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors for the VDU project, says Science, Energy and Technology Minister, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley.
“The staff members are working feverishly. The money is in place and the government has made an allocation for this year for us to proceed with the vacuum distillation unit project,” he said as quoted by the government portal Jamaica Information Service.
The VDU unit which reduces the sulphur content of marine fuel will allow Petrojam to offer products for the bunkering sector, he notes.
