Limetree Bay Terminal Restoration And Restart
This island project shows the importance of developing relationships with local vendors and using effective communication avenues as a part of superior customer service for a client.
The Hovensa Facility closed, decommissioned in 2012, and remained dormant until December 2015. In the initial restart phase, the terminal will bring 13 million barrels of storage online, the first of which is promised to various customers. The LB Terminals facility consists of approximately 32 million barrels of crude oil and petroleum product storage, a deep-water port with 10 petroleum docks, one bulk product dock, and six tug boats to support the terminal operations. In the second phase, another 13 million barrels of storage capacity will be brought online, contingent upon demand from potential customers. The facility currently blends and stores crude, gasoline, diesel, propane, jet fuel, and fuel oil.
EXCEL repaired and turned over 21 storage tanks totaling over 8.7 million barrels of storage capacity back to operations. Each tank presented different challenges related to its required and recommended repairs. Due to the facility being closed and decommissioned three years prior, the dormant storage tanks were exposed to the Caribbean environment, causing damage.
