PM gives update on refinery acquisition


    Patriotic Energies Ltd has asked to see the Pointe a Pierre refinery in “greater detail”.

    Today in the Lower House, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley gave an update on the state of negotiations for the refinery in Pointe a Pierre.

    He says while the company was previously given data relating to its operations, it has now requested more.

    The PM also stated what the next move would be, should Patriotic withdraw its interest in acquiring the refinery.

    Last year, Patriotic Energies, which is owned by the OWTU, was selected by the government as the preferred bidder to operate the refinery.
