Vancouver Airport Fuel Facility moving ahead

570 Richmond


This week Richmond City Council narrowly approved the permits that would give the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation access to the right-of-way need to upgrade the 52 year-old pipeline that currently runs from Westridge terminals through north Richmond.  This approval along with the servicing agreement for a marine off-loading terminal are last piece of the puzzle for the proposed jet fuel facilty that would service Vancouver airport.  The airport currently gets 80 per cent of its fuel from the existing pipeline and 20 per cent from tanker truck deliveries. Without the upgrade to the pipeline another 70 truck deliveries per day of fuel would be needed during peak times to keep up with the growing demand at the airport.
