Port of Long Beach releases environmental report

The Port of Long Beach has released a draft report examining the environmental impacts of a proposed project by World Oil Terminals.

The project’s goal is to build two more petroleum storage tanks at the privately owned and controlled Port of Long Beach facility on Pier C.

Ribost Terminals has applied to the port for a Harbour Development Permit to build and operate two new 25,000-barrel petroleum storage tanks with internal floating roofs, new tank foundations, and piping connections to existing facility infrastructure such as truck loading racks and pipelines.

Ribost would move petroleum product from two existing, underutilised tanks at the site to two new, smaller tanks.

Third-party suppliers would then be able to lease two existing tanks at the plant to hold marine petrol and marine fuel blending components, as is now done.

According to the Port of Long Beach, the proposal does not contain any extra pipes, truck loading racks, or other facility modifications, nor does it allow for more commodities to be transported through the terminal than is now permitted.

In September 2022, the Port of Long Beach awarded more than $2.7 million to community-based projects since 2021 as part of its Community Grant Program to reduce its environmental impact.

More recently, the Port of Long Beach fulfilled all of the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan targets a year ahead of schedule.
