vancouver-energy-terminalTesoro Refining & Marketing Company LLC and Savage Companies formed a joint venture — Vancouver Energy — to develop, own and operate a terminal at the Port of Vancouver USA that will transfer North American crude oil from rail to ship, subject to regulatory approval. The $210 million energy infrastructure project has been endorsed by the Washington Building and Construction Trades Council and the Southwest Washington Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO.

Vancouver Energy, the Columbia Pacific Building and Trades Council, the International Union of Operating Engineers, and the Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters have all entered into a Letter of Understanding for a Project Labor Agreement for the construction of the facility.

The project is currently being evaluated by the state’s Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC), which has produced a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for public review. Public comments are being taken until Jan. 22.
