When the refinery arrived Curacao 2.0 started. Thanks to this Curacao has developed to what it is now. Discussing the possibility that the refinery will disappear is very emotional too many. Many people are afraid of the future. But the future is not in our hand. The refinery is the property of the government of Curacao. It is managed by a State Owned Company, Refeneria di Korsou NV (RdK). The refinery is leased to the Venezuelan State Owned Company PDVSA to refine Venezuelan oil. The contract expires in 2019. Parties still have not started the negotiations to discuss the future after 2019. There is a possibility that parties will not continue after 20199. Exploring a scenario without the refinery is relevant.
