Port of Vancouver upgrades will keep gas company here

first_imgNatural gas distributor -Keyera Energy Co. will relocate its facilities and keep jobs in Vancouver under a plan approved by the Port of Vancouver’s Board of Commissioners Tuesday.The three-member board unanimously approved a contract of about $984,000 to extend utilities and make other improvements to a four-acre parcel north of the port’s Terminal 5 rail loop. The work to improve the property, to begin in the next 14 days, will enable Keyera to relocate its liquefied propane gas storage and transfer facility at 1308 W. McLoughlin Blvd. to the northeastern portion of the former Alcoa-Evergreen aluminum site, now called Terminal 5.Curtis Shuck, director of economic development and facilities for the port, said Keyera’s relocation plans, coupled with the board’s action Tuesday, will retain three to four full-time and part-time jobs directly associated with Keyera’s operations. Shuck said the move also means that roughly 20 to 30 jobs indirectly associated with Keyera’s operations, such as truck drivers making deliveries, will stay in Vancouver.The utilities work the board approved Tuesday not only “provides the foundation” for Keyera to develop the site, but it also “prepares the property for other interested users,” Shuck said. “You build it, and they come.”The Keyera project is the latest deal being pursued by the Port of Vancouver to promote economic development in the region. Last week, for example, the port announced plans to sell up to 22 acres of industrial property to Farwest Steel Corp., a move that could eventually generate up to 225 jobs. The port’s board is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the first step of its plans with Farwest — freeing up the property so it may be sold — on June 8.last_img read more
