Barbados now getting oil from Petrojam

The Barbados National Terminal Company Limited (BNTCL) says it is now getting its supply of oil from Petrojam in Jamaica following the closure last November of the state-owned PETROTRIN oil refinery in Trinidad and Tobago.
 
Alex McDonald, the company's chairman, said the new agreement with Jamaica's state-owned oil refinery has resulted in Barbadians paying much less for fuel.
 
Mr. McDonald said the contract with Petrojam has been in existence over the last six months and while the company had received numerous offers worldwide, Barbados' relationship with Jamaica was a decisive factor in awarding the contract to Kingston.
