St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands … Thursday, August 1st, 2019… Limetree Bay Terminals Summer Internship Program

On Friday August 2nd, 2019, Limetree Bay Terminals, LLC (“Limetree) will recognize 20 young Virgin Islanders who completed Limetree’s 2019 summer internship program. The program provided interns tangible work experience in areas that best fit their individual interests. During the six to eight week internship program, interns were assigned specific work activities and projects within Limetree. Interns worked in various departments that included Engineering, Information Technology, Security, Safety and Environmental, Maintenance, Marine, Medical, Warehouse, Human Resources and other areas. The interns were required to complete a detailed application and interview process and also got the opportunity to learn many of the operational aspects of Limetree. They also gained insight into the human resources, security and safety policies and procedures of the company. In addition, several interns completed Basic Plus training, the benchmark for general safety rules, regulations, practices, and principles within the petroleum refining industry along with site specific training and received certifications. The interns had the opportunity to learn about the complexities and rewards involved in working at Limetree.

Darius Sweet, CEO of Limetree Bay Terminals states, “Limetree’s summer intern program allows young Virgin Islanders an opportunity to explore various careers in the energy industry. It is important that our company continues to partner with the Virgin Islands community to develop young people throughout the territory. Each individual at Limetree plays a critical role in the overall success of the organization and we appreciate all the departments and mentors that worked with the students. We hope that the interns had a valuable experience and feel encouraged to explore a career at Limetree in the future.”

Limetree sincerely thanks the VI Department of Labor for their partnership and support of the internship program.
