First shipment of oil arrives at Cuban refinery

CIENFUEGOS, Cuba (ACN): More than a half million barrels of oil have arrived in the province of Cienfuegos in Cuba for the start of operations at the Comandante Camilo Cienfuegos oil refinery December 22.

Recent rehabilitation works to the plant included repairing the refinery dock and dredging the canal entrance, under a joint venture between Venezuela and Cuba. The refinery, located on Cuba’s south coast some 250 kilometers east of Havana, is expected to process some 65,000 barrels of crude oil per day at start up, reaching some 100,000 by the mid-term.

The reopening ceremony will be held during the Fourth Petrocaribe Summit being held Friday, December 21 in the city of Cienfuegos.
