Limetree Bay Terminal

Home Limetree Bay Terminal

Terminal Asset Overview

Since purchasing the former HOVENSA refinery in 2016, Limetree Bay Ventures has successfully restarted operations at the storage terminal, assembled an industry-leading operations team, entered into long-term, fee-based leases for a large proportion of storage, and initiated a project to restart certain refining operations. The facility is a “choice terminal” in the Caribbean for clean oil products due to its central geographical location relative to Caribbean Island markets, Central and South America, and West Africa. Capabilities such as in-line/closed loop gasoline blending and ship berths are protected from weather delays.
