ORANJESTAD May 13 (Reuters) - Aruba and Venezuelan PDVSA's refining unit Citgo Petroleum reached a deal to lease and restart an idled 235,000-barrel-per-day refinery, the government of the Caribbean island said late on Friday.

The agreement involves a 25-year lease that would allow Citgo to operate the refinery after investing in an overhaul. (Reporting by Sailu Urribari in Oranjestad; Writing by Alexandra Ulmer; Editing by Chris Reese)
