Issue: Pembina Terminal Proposal Amendment
Pembina Pipeline Corporation (Calgary, Canada), wants to lease and build an export terminal on the Port of PortlandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 PortlandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Conservation Habitat zoning from the Portland City Council to allow this activity – a change the council can approve or reject.
