The shortage of asphalt and asphaltic products should soon be over.
News came from Petrojam General Manager Winston Watson on Wednesday that the entity had resumed full refining operations for its slate of petroleum products.
The refinery was shut down for routine maintenance for two and half months.
However, during the period, additional maintenance work was required which extended the downtime. This resulted in a supply challenge in the asphalt market.
Mr. Watson said the company also experienced challenges in sourcing the commodity on the international market.
Petrojam's Asphalt Unit is designed to produce 1,000 barrels per day.
