Port Metro Vancouver and DP World are jointly proposing to increase the capacity at Centerm container terminal, from approximately 900,000 TEU to between 1.5 million TEU.
The proposed project includes:
o reconfiguration of the container yard
o extension of the intermodal rail yard
o new truck in-gates
o a multi-storey parking structure
The Centerm Expansion Project is currently being reviewed under the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority's project and environmental review process. Procurement for the proposed project has been extended to accomodate extra due diligence being done through the permitting process. Should the project be approved, it is anticipated that construction would begin in 2018.

The 1,156 km “TransMountain Pipeline System” was originally completed in 1952. Since that time, the pipeline capacity has been increased a number of times by twinning parts of the line and adding associated facilities. In April 2012 Kinder Morgan Canada announced it will proceed with plans to expand the existing TransMountain system following receipt of strong commitments from its commercial customers.
The preliminary scope of the project includes:
The proposed expansion will increase capacity on TransMountain from approximately 300,000 barrels/day to about 890,000 barrels/day.
$5.4 billion (capital cost)
The Federal Government approved the project on November 29, 2016.
