The national petroleum refinery is beginning a series of tests of its new distribution facility at Daniel Oduber airport in Liberia.
The Refinadora Costarricense de Petróleo said that this is the final stage in construction of the $17 million project.
The facility will supply jet fuel and aviation gasoline.
A consortium, EDICA-Hatch Mott Mc Donald Cape Safe Fuelley S.R.L, built the facility. The refinery said that the job also includes training of those who will use the facility as well as delivery of full documentation.
