Jamaica News: The asphalt shortage that had struck the local market has ended.

This after Petrojam indicated that it had resumed refinery operations for the product as of Saturday.

Minister of Information Ruel Reid on Wednesday said the “supply challenge” which faced the market was due to a routine shut down in a section of the refinery for maintenance.

The Jamaica music fraternity was plunged into mourning after the passing of “Carrot” formerly of world renowned group Third World.

During an annual routine shutdown the corporation usually supplies the market with asphalt through imports however they also had a problem sourcing it overseas. This resulted in a shortage of the commodity locally.

The shortage had impacted orders from

the National Works Agency, the National Water Commission and other private businesses.

General Manager at Petrojam Winston has apologized to businesses for the interruptions to their operations as a result of the shortage.

The Asphalt Unit at Petrojam is designed to produce close to 1000 barrels per day.
