Paulwell Disagrees With Recommendation To Lease Petrojam Terminal On a Long Term Basis


Opposition Spokesman on Energy, Phillip Paulwell, says he does not agree with a recommendation that the Petrojam terminal be leased to the private sector on a long term basis.

The Christopher Zacca-led Petrojam Review Committee, PRC, recently recommended that within 2-years, both the refinery and terminal, should be leased to the private sector.

But, Mr. Paulwell says he believes the Government of Jamaica should retain control of the terminal.
