Petrojam Limited (Petrojam) is planning to undertake the upgrade of the Petrojam Refinery project at 96 Marcus Garvey Drive, West Kingston, Jamaica.
Petrojam is jointly owned by PDVCaribe, a subsidiary of Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) and the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ). The PCJ is a statutory body created and wholly owned by the Government of Jamaica.
The project involves the upgrade of the oil refinery from 35,000bpd to 50,000bpd. The project includes the upgrade of crude distillation unit, gas recovery unit and Kerosene hydrotreater; the construction of distillate hydrotreater, naphtha hydrotreater, continuous catalyst regeneration platformer unit, vacuum distillation unit, delayed coking unit, sulphur recovery unit, tail gas treatment unit and waste water treatment plant (includes upgrading the existing wastewater plant).
In August 2005, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between Government of Jamaica and Venezuela for the development of the project.
Claude Davis & Associates and TEMN Ltd were appointed as study consultants for the project.
SNC-Lavalin Engineers was appointed to undertake FEED Study on the project.

In February 2017, agreement has been signed between the Jamaica’s energy minister and the Venezuela’s minister of petroleum.
