In todays Consortium

Limetree Bay: There has been talk of an impending announcement by the governor relative to recent developments at the Limetree Bay Terminals. Rumors of a restart of the oil refining units on the east of the refinery have dominated local circles, with the talk being that British Petroleum, known universally as BP, taking the lead. None of this has been confirmed, however, and trusted Mapp administration sources have remained mum.

If there is in fact a major development relative to oil refining at the former HOVENSA facility, expect the governor to make it a key part of his address tonight.

Its a bit premature for the Governor to make this announcement, but, there is definitely talks going on at a high level. Expect an announcement in late March/early April.

I missed about a 1/2 hour of his speech, but of what I heard, it wasn't mentioned.

I also heard of a BP rumor and a new hiring of 4000 people. Honestly, it sounds too good to be true.

Because we are bored silly due to no cable TV, our air antenna gets us 2 PBS channels. Last night 12-1 aired Gov Mapp’s State of The Territory.

If I recall correctly, he mentioned there are plans to increase the amount of product being stored, bring in larger tankers, & add more people. Currently there are 600 and will be looking to add approx 200 more. Thete was no mention of refining.. Again I’m going from memory
