Limetree Bay Refining will be capable of processing around 200 thousand barrels per day. Key restart work at the site began in 2018, and the refinery is expected to resume operations in late 2019. Refinery units will include the 62 thousand barrels per day modern coker unit, extensive desulfurization capacity, and a reformer unit to produce clean low-sulfur transportation fuels that will meet International Marine Organization (“IMO”) standards required under international law in 2020.
Limetree is pleased to support the IMO transition to new international maritime standards. Equally important, the project will provide needed economic development in the U.S.V.I., creating more than 1,500 local jobs during construction and 400 full time jobs beyond 2020.
