What's Next with North America's Largest Proposed Oil-By-Rail Terminal?

Tesoro Savage: By the Numbers

By Dan Serres, Conservation Director

 A diverse crowd representing tribal, community, health, faith, local business and environmental groups spoke about how Tesoro-Savage’s proposed crude oil-by-rail project would threaten public safety, nearby communities, and water quality.

This month, Governor Inslee and Washington’s Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council heard an unprecedented uproar of opposition to the Tesoro Savage oil terminal proposal in Vancouver, North America’s largest proposed oil-by-rail facility. Washington’s Energy Council conducted three public hearings and took written comments to inform its review for the proposed Tesoro terminal. The Energy Council will make a recommendation to Governor Jay Inslee. After receiving the recommendation, Governor Inslee will make the final decision to deny or approve the terminal. To date, here is what is proposed and a summary of the outpouring of opposition to this project.
