HOUSTON, April 29 (Reuters) - Jamaica’s refining company Petrojam launched a tender to buy a 50,000 barrel cargo of ultra low-sulfur diesel (ULSD) to be received May 27-31 at Port Bustamante, Kingston, according to a document seen by Reuters on Tuesday.
The company, which owns the 35,000 barrel per day (bpd) Kingston refinery with Venezuela’s state-run PDVSA, earlier this month bought a 100,000 barrel cargo of high-sulfur diesel (HSD) and a 265,000 barrel cargo combining gasoline, HSD and jet fuel.
The tender document adds that the ULSD cargo must contain a maximum of 15 parts per million sulfur. The company will receive bids, indexed to ULSD prices from the U.S. Gulf Coast, until May 12. (Reporting by Marianna Parraga)
