Aegean launches St Croix bunker business with Freepoint Commodities subsidiary

Aegean to market marine fuels supplied by Freepoint to customers at the Limetree Bay Facility.

Updated on 30 Aug 2017 13:17 GMT

Aegean Marine Petroleum Network Inc. and Caribbean Bunkers LLC, a subsidiary of Freepoint Commodities LLC, today announced the signing of an agreement to cooperate on bunkering sales, focused around the U.S. Virgin Islands facility at Limetree Bay, St. Croix.

Under terms of the agreement, Aegean will market bunker fuels and marine gas oil supplied by Freepoint to customers calling on the Limetree Bay Facility.

The agreement also calls for future expansion in the region that could lead to adding delivery capability through Aegean's owned fleet, Aegean said.

Manolis Chochlakis, Aegean's Regional Manager of the Americas, said: "We are pleased to announce the launch of our new service center in St. Croix USVI, which strengthens our existing presence in the Caribbean and represents another important step in our effort to broaden our global footprint in attractive markets. The growth and activity level at Limetree Bay has been remarkable since the terminal was purchased in 2016."

Chochlakis added: "We believe working together with Freepoint, which is an equity partner in the Limetree Bay facility, provides us both with incentives to jointly grow our presence in the region. The Aegean and Freepoint teams are experienced groups that have worked well together in the past. They will ensure our customers in the Caribbean get first class service.

"Freepoint is excited about developing this business -- we envision it will be a core strategy in our global oil platform. The St. Croix Limetree Bay Facility has brought a lot of promise to the region and continues to grow at an impressive rate. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to develop a strong base of operations on the island and believe this new venture is a perfect complement to our existing business," said Rob Peck, Senior Managing Director, Global Oil.

"We have worked with Aegean for a number of years and are privileged to be cooperating with a company that is so well-respected in the industry. We believe this agreement will be extremely beneficial to both companies as we expand and optimize our business in the Caribbean," Peck added.

The agreement is due to begin in September, with the venture expected to be fully operational contributing results during the fourth quarter of 2017.
