Oil tankers protest sale of Landulpho Alves

Oil tankers are demonstrating against the sale of the Landulpho Alves refinery (Rlam), located in São Francisco do Conde, salvador metropolitan region, Bahia. The protests began on the morning of Wednesday (10), when the group of workers met in the access to the site.

The sale process was completed last Monday (8), in the amount of US$ 1.65 billion for the investment firm Mubadala Capital. Dissatisfied, the oil tankers voted for the strike, which is expected to begin next week. It is noteworthy that Landulpho Alves was the first refinery in the country, created in September 1950, when oil was discovered in Bahia.

Rlam currently has 26 processing units and 201 storage tanks. It refines more than 30 types of products such as gasoline, diesel, lubricants, aviation kerosene and others.
