Petrojam building to be renamed for Seaga

State-owned oil refinery Petrojam’s corporate office is to be renamed the Edward Seaga Building, in honour of the former prime minister of Jamaica.

A ceremony renaming the building is to be held tomorrow.

The move to rename the building was reportedly led by energy minister Dr Andrew Wheatley.

General Manager of Petrojam Floyd Grindley says it’s being done in recognition of Seaga’s contribution to national development, particularly his spearheading of the purchase of the Petrojam refinery from Esso West Indies in 1982.

Petrojam was mandated to be the least cost supplier of petroleum products to the Jamaican market.
