Port Punts on Dangerous Crude Oil Terminal Decision, Governor Inslee Still Has Final Call »

March 7th, 2017: Today in a 2-1 vote, the Port of Vancouver Commission allowed its lease for the Tesoro Savage oil terminal to extend for an additional three months, despite growing pressure on the Port to pull the plug on the languishing, unpopular proposal. Tesoro Savage has proposed the largest oil-by-rail terminal in North America, capable of shipping 360,000 barrels of crude oil each day. Already, the Cities of Vancouver, Washougal, and Spokane, Columbia River Treaty tribes, ILWU Local 4, Vancouver’s Waterfront Development Project, the Fruit Valley Neighborhood Association, the Washington Department of Natural Resources, and Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson have called on Washington’s Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC) to recommend denial.
