HOUSTON, April 11 (Reuters) - Jamaica’s refining company Petrojam is offering to buy a 100,000 barrel cargo of high-sulfur diesel (HSD) to be received April 25-27 at Kingston, the port that serves its 35,000 barrel per day (bpd) refinery, according to a document seen by Reuters on Friday.
Petrojam, formed by the Jamaican government and Venezuela’s PDVSA, supplies most of products demanded by the domestic market, but it also imports finished fuels. In March it bought a 100,000 barrel cargo of gasoline.
The invitation details that the cargo should contain maximum 0.5 percent sulfur and bidders must index their prices to gasoil number 2 from the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Offers will be received until April 16. (Reporting by Marianna Parraga)
