Country Highlights

Curaçao: Oil Refining Industry

Curaçao’s strategic deep water access has helped it emerge as a major oil products transit hub, directly contributing almost 20% of its GDP historically. However, global energy transitions now necessitate balancing economic resilience with sustainability across priority areas like emission reductions, community skill-building, and exploring clean fuel production pathways.

Significant potential still exists to reorient the 11 billion barrel Isla refinery into a circular economy zone recycling biodegradable waste or pivoting fuel units toward green hydrogen over time, suiting wider decarbonization objectives. Structured coordination is vital between industrial operators, policy regulators, and environmental advocates on objectives like storage capacity expansion planning, introducing emission tracking systems, and workforce upskilling programs for retaining well-paying oil/gas jobs while minimizing socio-economic risks from global oil demand declines responsibly.

Industrial ecosystem stakeholders must also evaluate marketing repositioning, leveraging Curaçao’s strengths around integrated infrastructure availability and strategic Atlantic location competitively. With extensive advisory experience enabling energy players to balance strategic realignment during transitions, RFC offers analysis on infrastructure repurposing feasibility, renewable energy adoption techniques, and ideas on unique value propositions that can help anchor Curaçao’s relevance amidst shifting landscape dynamics beyond oil/gas – upholding continuity of prosperity creation for people-focused priorities responsibly.

Curaçao’s economy currently relies heavily on oil refineries and tourism among other greatly polluting industries. However, there are enormous gains to be made in moving towards a circular economy. The circular economy aims to close all cycles of all raw materials, preserving and innovating production processes and the underlying business models. The cross-links between sectors transform the economy into an ecosystem of innovation.

The Curaçao Doughnut Economy movement is inspired by the world’s first city donut that Kate Raworth made for Amsterdam. The purpose of Curaçao Doughnut economy is to create the world’s first island doughnut and become a thriving nation.

In conclusion, Curaçao’s oil products transit hub must balance economic resilience with sustainability across priority areas like emission reductions, community skill-building, and exploring clean fuel production pathways. The potential to reorient the Isla refinery into a circular economy zone recycling biodegradable waste or pivoting fuel units toward green hydrogen over time is significant. Structured coordination is vital between industrial operators, policy regulators, and environmental advocates. Industrial ecosystem stakeholders must also evaluate marketing repositioning, leveraging Curaçao’s strengths around integrated infrastructure availability and strategic Atlantic location competitively. By moving towards a circular economy, Curaçao can create a thriving nation that preserves and innovates production processes and the underlying business models.
