PDVSA surprised with plans RdK

WILLEMSTAD - The Isla (Venezuelan company PDVSA) has no knowledge of the plans Refineria di Kòrsou (RdK) has with the refinery installations in Schottegat. Yesterday, RdK announced, in the Dutch morning newspaper Antilliaans Dagblad, that its plans include a gas terminal, soil remediation, cheaper electricity and finding a new investment partner.

The Idea is that the Isla will be in the best possible state when the contract with the Venezuelan oil company PDVSA expires in 2019. Now the spokesman of the company, Mr. Kenneth Gijsbertha says that everyone at Isla is surprised about these plans. For Isla, the first priority is to sign the Memorandum of Understanding, which leads to agreements between the Government of Curacao and PDVSA.

Both parties have to agree on the extensive project Paric, which should provide for the modernization of the refinery. This project will cost between 2 to 3 billion guilders. According to Gijsbertha, the government does not really know what it wants to do with the oil refinery.
