Petrojam, Jamaica's only petroleum refinery is a limited liability company 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.
We supply a full range of domestic, transportation and industrial petroleum products. We also operate a laboratory which provides quality control and certification services for petroleum products manufactured and imported by the refinery. Laboratory service is also provided to Jamaican businesses and the scientific community.
Our laboratory's primary function is to ensure that the products we supply to the market, whether produced or imported, meet all legal and contractual specifications. To do this, samples are tested and analysed from all process unit streams and blended products to ensure that it meets the specifications required by the refinery. Each batch of fuel, which includes gasoline, kerosene, automobile diesel, heavy fuel oil, LPG, ethanol and asphalt), is analysed. Our goal is to ensure the product meets the specifications certified by the laboratory before being made available to our customers.
