The proposed Vancouver Energy terminal provides critical infrastructure that enables the safe transfer of North American crude oil from rail to ship, and ultimately the manufacturing of transportation fuels for our daily lives at West Coast refineries. Vancouver Energy will stimulate local and state economies, providing jobs and helping to reduce America’s reliance on foreign oil – all while operating with the utmost dedication to safety and the environment.

Tesoro and Savage formed a joint venture to build and operate the Vancouver Energy terminal at the Port of Vancouver USA. The Vancouver Energy terminal will accept customers’ crude oil that is delivered by rail from the midcontinent of North America – including the Bakken formation. 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 is committed to making our proposed crude oil transload terminal a safe, reliable and beneficial project for the state, region and country.



Vancouver Energy will reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil, increasing our energy independence and security.
