PASEA ESTATE, Tortola, VI -The heavy rainfall that has devastated the Virgin Islands (VI) from August 7, 2017 to August 8, 2017, has also temporarily affected the leading Petroleum Service Station on Tortola, Delta Petroleum.

Just like well over 90 percent of businesses from Fish Bay to Prospect Reef on Tortola that faced severe interruptions due to the heavy rain falls, Petroleum giant Delta experienced some flooding in their C-Store at Pasea. It resulted in a temporary closure of the entire operations from about 11:00 PM last night August 7, 2017.

Delta Petroleum Pasea back on track

However, due to fast work by staff and other vendors, the store resumed full service from about 3:00 PM, this evening August 8, 2017.

The Pasea flag ship store was the only one affected as operations at its service stations and C-Stores on Virgin Gorda and Pockwood Pond, Tortola, continued without many interruptions.

Delta Petroleum (Caribbean) Ltd Regional General Manager Bevis A. Sylvester told our newsroom that he was thankful to the staff and all others, "who contributed for their hard work in bringing back the operations to normal and appreciated very much the patience and understanding of all Delta's loyal customers".

The Pioneer in 24 hour service stations

Delta Petroleum at Pasea on Tortola is the first and only 24 hours service station in the VI. They continue to be a pioneer in ultra clean superior performance diesel, gasoline and LPG, meeting the highest U.S and European standards.

The Petroleum company also provides marine services and hires over 150 persons in the Caribbean Region alone.

They have Caribbean Operations in Virgin Gorda and Tortola in the VI, Anguilla, St Martin and St. Maarten, St. Kitts, Nevis, and Montserrat.
