A proposal by Wolverine Terminals to construct the Prince Rupert Marine Fuels bunkering facility could take off, if a draft Environmental Effects Evaluation (EEE) evaluation gets approved in March.
Wolverine Terminals is proposing to construct and operate a marine fuel delivery service for the Port of Prince Rupert that will enable cargo vessels anchored or berthed in the Port to refuel locally.
To date, the Port of Prince Rupert is one of the only major ports in the world not to offer marine fuelling services for cargo ships.
“We’re continuing to gather public input to help us identify, assess and mitigate potential impacts of this important project for Prince Rupert,” says Serge Bisson, President, Wolverine Terminals.
“We’ve received valuable input that has contributed to the draft Environmental Effects Evaluation.
“We are now following up to provide the public with an update and another opportunity to comment on the project.”
Wolverine expects a regulatory decision in mid-2018, with construction of Prince Rupert Marine Fuels to begin in early 2019.
