Vopak Pacific Canada Project received determinations, in accordance with the requirements of Section 67 of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 and Section 82 of the Impact Assessment Act from the Prince Rupert Port Authority, Transport Canada, and Environment and Climate Change Canada that the Project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.  Vopak will continue to work with federal authorities to obtain the necessary federal approvals prior to making a Final Investment Decision.

Vopak Pacific Canada (the Project) is planned on Ridley Island within the lands and waters under the jurisdiction of the Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA). The Project is expected to store Liquefied Petroleum Gas (e.g., propane), Clean Petroleum Products (e.g., diesel and/or gasoline), and methanol received by rail from BC and Alberta. Customers of Vopak will be responsible for bringing the product to site and for shipping the product from the jetty to markets around the world.  The Project includes the construction, operation and decommissioning of the bulk liquids storage facility, including a jetty. Vopak will build the Project and manage the day-to-day operations of the facility.
