Petrojam Limited, Jamaica’s only petroleum refinery, is a subsidiary of the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ), a statutory body created and wholly owned by the Government of Jamaica. Petrojam was established in 1982 when the Government of Jamaica purchased the Esso Kingston Refinery, which had been built, and operated by Esso since March 1964.
The Petrojam Refinery supplies Jamaica with a full range of domestic, transportation and industrial petroleum products produced from crude oil which is sourced primarily from Venezuela, Ecuador and Mexico.
