In 2004, Delta Trading, L.P. purchased Paloma Station, a 57-acre parcel located about 20 miles southwest of Bakersfield California. The site was originally developed in the 1940’s by Western Gulf Oil. Since purchasing Paloma Station, Delta Trading has removed all of the processing equipment and made major improvements to the property, including a significant rail expansion, new tankage and truck racks, truck scales, crude oil blending and pumping systems, and ancillary facilities.
Delta Trading, L.P. also purchased tankage near Valley Acres, CA known as 27G, and added a pipeline connection such that 27G is now an origin station on Crimson Pipeline’s KLM system that feeds into refineries in the Bay Area.
In 2011, Crimson Renewable Energy completed California’s largest biodiesel manufacturing facility on the Paloma property, and will complete a major expansion in early 2021. Delta Trading, L.P. provides terminal services for Crimson Renewable Energy.
