Hovensa has enough regular gasoline to last until the end of October and enough premium gasoline and ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel to last the year, the company announced Monday, on the eve of a special Senate session to appropriate money to pay to litigate with Hovensa over terms of closure.
After the Senate voted down a negotiated settlement to handle the closure of Hovensa, tax issues and the medium term fuel supply for St. Croix on Aug. 8, Gov. John deJongh Jr. issued a statement saying the existing concession agreement remains in force. He then called a special session to request funding for litigation with Hovensa.
