Oil Terminal Info

Peter Aller

You are probably aware that the Port of Vancouver is embroiled with the community, and the State agencies, about their proposal to build, with Tesoro and Savage, the world's biggest oil transfer terminal in downtown Vancouver on Port property.  Up to four unit trains of 100 tank cars each would unload North Dakota fracked oil in downtown Vancouver daily into a tank farm.  The oil would then be transferred to ships to head down the Columbia River to refineries. 

While there is the potential for the Port to achieve large profits from the project, the potential also exists for environmental excursions to occur via water, rail spillage or rail fire, and air quality in a large surrounding area.  Many people have risen up in protest.  Two Port Commissioners waived re-election over this controversial issue.

Information of late indicates the final Environmental Impact Statement and the air permits may be issued by the end of May and EFSEC would open up for public comment on those documents and data soon after.

Current anti-oil terminal activities include protests headed up by Riverkeepers and more locally by Don Steinke.  Port Commissioner Eric LaBrant was elected in 2015 on an anti-terminal platform and currently Don Orange (www.donorange.com) is running for Brian Wolfe's soon-to-be-empty seat this year.  A new activist website has sprung up - http://www.westernagtech.com/wats-cares.html - that may pique your interest along with a Google Groups site for information and discussion - http://www.tinyurl.com/vancouver-oil-talk
