No Government Response Yet to Porto Kòrsou as a Potential Refinery Investor
02.26.2023 By - NEWS

February 26, 2023 [Curaçao Chronicle] – The government has not yet commented on whether Porto Kòrsou is a serious candidate for the reopening of the refinery.


The initiator is open to a collaboration to reopen, Prime Minister Pisas said.

During the parliamentary meeting that took place last week, Pisas called on party members to think about possible parties in the context of reopening the refinery. This is in response to the withdrawal of the Caribbean Petroleum Refinery (CPR), because complaints have been filed against them.

Sven Rusticus, spokesperson on behalf of Porto Kòrsou, thinks he can be of value to the development of the Isla site, also from an economic point of view. In addition, Rusticus says that the refinery has a rich history in Curaçao, and that he wants to value that history in the plans he has.

“Besides creating employment, the redevelopment of the refinery will bring direct financial benefits,” said Rusticus. How this is all made possible is still being considered.
