After almost twenty years in the business, Sergio Soto oil refinery, found in Cabaiguán, Sancti Spiritus, strEngthens oil productions while getting involved in producing dielectric oil for transformers, asphaltic liquid and viscosity-reducing naphtha, which is highly demanded in the oil extraction process.
According to the plant general director, over 17 000 tons of crude have been so far refined this year. This crude oil was mostly extracted from oil fields located in Matanzas, Ciego de Avila and Sancti Spiritus provinces.
During the present year, the plant has produced important amounts of asphaltic liquid, dielectric oil, solvent naphtha and Sigatoka oil, used to fight Sigatoka pest affecting bananas.
This entity is the only one of the kind in the island that exclusively processes Cuban oil.
