Learn more about who we are and how we operate


The CITASCO consortium was originally created after the official invitation of the Curacao government and Refinery of Curacao leadership to visit the Refinery. The company was formed with the aim to help the governments in the Dutch Caribbean and the refinery workers with the continuation of the refining and oil terminal activities in the Dutch Caribbean Kingdom. The CITASCO owners and board members have owned and operated various refineries, oil terminals, and petroleum products trading desks. The CITASCO consortium was selected by IHS MARKIT (ARAWAK Project) as a preferred partner for the so-called short-term solution.

The CITASCO logo

The liquid energy drop in the centre of our logo refers to our long track record and expertise in the energy industries. The blue, green shape surrounding the liquid energy drop represents the shell of a turtle. An animal that stands for longevity and perseverance, something that describes our business character and way of working. Additionally, the animal and the colours represent our roots and history in the Dutch Caribbean (Curaçao). At last, with the colours (green/blue) of the shield, we do not only want to indicate that we are aiming to take part in the global energy transition, but also take the consequences of our core business (the liquid energy drop) into account and that we operate in a responsible manner in order to limit our ecological footprint.

Based in Curacao

The CITASCO Group of companies are incorporated under the laws of Curaçao. Since the 10th October 2010 Curaçao is an independent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
