    — Hovensa LLC, operator of a 495,000
    barrel-a-day refinery in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, is
    closing its processing units as Hurricane Omar is forecast to hit
    the islands late today.
         “Hovensa LLC is in the process of shutting down essentially
    all its processing and auxiliary equipment at the St. Croix
    refinery except those necessary to maintain supply of power to
    the complex,” Alex Moorhead, a spokesman for the joint venture
    that runs the refinery, said by telephone.
         Hovensa is a joint venture of New York-based Hess Corp. and
    Petroleos de Venezuela SA.
