Issue: Pembina Terminal Proposal Amendment

Pembina Pipeline Corporation (Calgary, Canada), wants to lease and build an export terminal on the Port of Portland’s Terminal 6 (located on the Columbia Slough in North Portland in order to export 500-800 million gallons of propane from Portland to Asian markets. The propane would be transferred by pipeline from storage tanks to supertankers. The pipeline has to traverse along 50-feet of shoreline in a special environmental zone currently protected from this type of industrial activity.

Because piping propane through an Environmental Conservation Zone is prohibited, Pembina is currently seeking an amendment to Portland’s Conservation Habitat zoning from the Portland City Council to allow this activity – a change the council can approve or reject.
