In Focus: Vancouver Energy

Last week, you may have read the profile on Vancouver Energy from Mike Richards at Lens. The project, a joint effort by Tesoro and Savage, would create an oil transfer terminal at the Port of Vancouver USA. Operation of the terminal would represent a major step toward increasing U.S. energy security, potentially replacing 30 percent of foreign crude oil used on the West Coast

The venture stands to generate $2 billion to the local Vancouver economy and more than 1,000 direct and indirect jobs annually, once operational. The project is currently four years into the permitting process with the Energy Facilitation Site Evaluation Council or EFSEC.

This week, Richards published a new video offering viewers some visual insight into the project with commentary from Vancouver Energy’s general manager Jared Larrabee. The brief video shares key project information, everything from the number of jobs to be created to the economic return on the investment for not only Southwest Washington but our state and region as well.
