The proposed Vancouver Energy terminal will serve a basic and important function: the safe transfer of North American crude oil from rail to ship.

Tesoro and Savage formed a joint venture to build and operate the Vancouver Energy terminal, which will accept and ship crude oil that originates in the midcontinent of North America – including the Bakken formation – at the Port of Vancouver USA via rail. The crude oil will be temporarily and safely stored in secure tanks, then transferred to customers’ vessels, shipped by customers to West Coast oil refineries, and converted into transportation fuels and other products for U.S. consumption.

Vancouver Energy created this website to share information about the project and our longstanding commitment to provide economic impact, environmental stewardship and other benefits to Southwest Washington, further unlocking the potential of the City of Vancouver, Clark County and greater Washington state.
