Pembina to advance Portland propane terminal plans

May 8, 2015 By    

Pembina Pipeline Corp. reaffirmed its plans to proceed toward the next steps in the development of its proposed Portland, Ore., propane export terminal project, despite pushback from the local government. Pembina says the Portland mayor also withdrew support for the project.

Last fall, Pembina partnered with the Port of Portland to create a West Coast propane export terminal. According to Pembina, the $500 million project would be the largest private investment in Portland’s history, with more than half of the cost sourced locally.

Pembina has already completed three public hearings to address any safety or environmental concerns from the community. The Portland City Council has scheduled another hearing for the project June 10.

The Port of Portland still supports the Pembina propane export terminal project, and it will continue working with the company on the proposed terminal, according to a Pembina press release. The company has also received support from business leaders, union workers and several city officials.
