St Lucia & Hess

Can't find post that said St Lucia didn't have refinery, so started new thread to post some of the info regarding refineries.

St Lucia sold their storage facility (which I guess is what STX is now).

http://www.caribjournal.com/2013/02/01/hess-to-sell-st-lucia-storage-terminal-fate-of-usvis-hovensa-facility-unclear/

I saw an article from 2008 that mentioned refinery. Assumed it was a refinery turned storage like St Croix.

What's the difference between the 2?????

There never was a refinery in St. Lucia. It was always only a terminal.

Buckeye purchased all of the Hess terminals, which included St. Lucia.

What is the difference between a terminal and St Croix facility?

There are too many issues that I don't understand on this deal, and don't trust anybody in VI posting info.

I'm in the VI also, so I'm afraid you won't be able to trust my postings either. 😎

A TERMINAL is storage and distribution of crude and products,
an OIL REFINERY takes crude (or light oils) and makes products.
A Refinery can also act in a dual role as a terminal.

If you don't trust anybody in the VI posting anything why don't you take your query elsewhere.

(phew, that's as polite as I could put it)

The daily chuckle came a little late and after 3 lbs of guacamole (made, not consumed!) so thanks to the last two posters!

So St Croix was the only refinery in Caribbean? Where are the others and what is their status?

I was not included in the survey and did not sign a petition. As of now, have no opinion on this issue.

I'm confused - explain what? You can Google, "Refineries" or "Caribbean refineries" and come up with listings. Like this:

There is a refinery in Jamaica and one in the Dominican Republic... PR had 3 but the all shut down and were demo'ed... Only the tank farms remain, hence, they are being used as storage facilities...

PetroJam (Gotta love that name) in Jamaica in partnership with none other than PDVSA http://petrojam.com/

REFIDOMSA in Dominican Republic http://www.refidomsa.com also with a Venezuelan agreement...

The refinery in Aruba, a Valero Refinery is shut down and is used as a storage facility... that was the last I heard... I know PDVSA was considering leasing it from Valero, but I don't know if the talks were succesful...

Also please don't forget to look at refining CAPACITIES. Our refinery on stx was one of the biggest in the world when it was built. The few remaining refineries in the Caribbean do not have anywhere near the capacity ours did.
