• Island Refinery
Located in Curacao, it was built in 1915 and began operations in 1918. In 1985, PDVSA took over refinery operations through a lease with the Curacao government for a period of 20 years. In 1994, an extension of the lease was agreed until 2019.
Isla Refinery has a nominal capacity of 335 MBD; it processes light and heavy Venezuelan crude. The products obtained are mainly supplied to the Caribbean and Central America, while a small portion is delivered to Curacao. The Isla Refinery has a Lubricants Complex for the production of paraffinic and naphthenic bases.
In 2015, the volume of crude processed was 178 MBD; 5 MBD of inputs for processes and mixtures were received. With this level of crude and inputs, 183 MBD of products were obtained, of which 51 MBD corresponds to gasoline and naphtha, 53 MBD to jet and distillate, 57 MBD to residual, 2 MBD to asphalt, MBD to lubricants and 17 MBD of others products. Operationally, the inputs and products of the Isla Refinery are accounted for within the International Refining System and exchanged with the National Refining System, so the volumes of both systems are not added directly. • Cuvenpetrol, S.A. -Camilo Cienfuegos Refinery
