Refineria Isla Curaçao B.V. is committed to be recognized as the leader of the refining business in the Latin American and Caribbean market.
Refineria Isla’s mission is to refine crude and process feedstock in an efficient, safe, competitive, safe and environmentally responsible manner, delivering our products and services on time, according to the required quantities and specified quality.
Taking into account the market opportunities, valuing the work of the people of Curacao and welfare of the community, sustainability of Refineria Isla has been integrated in the Latin American and Caribbean market, and hereby achieving the maximum value for the shareholder.
The Isla refinery in Curacao has the largest production capacity in the Caribbean, and now some Dutch politicians in The Hague are pushing to close the PdVSA-run refinery?
At the same time the Dutch want to keep their own five refineries (Shell Pernis, BP, Exxon, Total Vlissingen, Kuwait) near Europort Rotterdam open?
Pernis has a capacity of 404.000 barrels p/d, while Curacao offers 320.000 barrels per day. If the Isla refinery has to close down, the island will be dumped into poverty.
The Dutch have re-postioned themselves @ the Caribbean ABC Islands, and taken away the autonomy from the local governments.
Other huge income sources, like the HATO airport have been handed over to Swiss-Port, while the Shipping Dry Docks have been annexed by Dutch Damen Shipyards.
The largest oil refineries in the world are the Jamnagar Refinery in Gujarat, India (1,240,000 bpd), the SK Energy Co., Ltd. Ulsan Refinery in South Korea (1,120,000 bpd), and the Paraguana Refinery Complex in Falcon, Venezuela (940,000 bpd).
It makes absolutely no sense to close this large oil refinery in Curacao with skyrocketing oil prices as they are today, causing extreme economic deportation for the native born population.
But most importantly this refinery can not be closed, because the tax evading and extremely polluting tourism industry does not support the islands budget enough.
The hostile austerity measures, freezing minimum income, leading to more poverty among the population, causing massive deportation with modern flying pirate ships to the Netherlands.
