Companies seek public support for Vancouver oil terminal

Associated Press
Published:
VANCOUVER, Wash. — Top executives from the companies behind a proposed oil-transfer terminal at the Port of Vancouver are not finding much local support.
Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies hope to build a $110 million facility capable of handling as much as 380,000 barrels of oil per day. The facility would transfer oil from North Dakota to ships that would take it to U.S. refineries.
The Columbian newspaper reported at least 30 people testified during last week’s meeting of the Port’s board of commissioners, with almost all concerned about safety and environmental risks.
The testimony came a week after a majority of Vancouver City Council members opposed the facility.
Savage Companies senior vice president Nathan Savage said opponents have prematurely rushed to judgment, and urged them to let the review process play out.
