Public comments sought for Northwest oil refinery proposals

The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) has started reviewing a proposed oil refinery project north of Kitimat.

The $22 billion Kitimat Clean project is backed by newspaper publisher David Black and would see the construction of a heavy oil refinery and marine terminal.
The project is expected to process approximately 400,000 barrels of bitumen per day over a lifespan of at least 50 years.

CEAA is inviting the public to comment on which aspects of the environment may be affected by the project and what should be examined during the assessment.
It’s the second of four chances for the public to have a say on the project.
Written comments must be submitted by August 12, 2016.

The Canadian Environmental Assessment agency is also taking public comments on another proposed refinery project in the Kitimat area.
Pacific Future Energy’s project would be located on Dubose Flats about 32 kilometres north of Kitimat.
Written comments on the Pacific Future refinery must be submitted by July 20th, 2016 to determine whether an environmental assessment for the project is required.

About Bill Fee


  1. No dirty oil refinery in Kitimat, leave it in the ground and start looking into geothermal heat, wind, wave or solar resources for a sustainable, no pollution or carbon production. Your plant idea will raise the carbon index that we don’t need with our planets temperatures already soaring beyond acceptable levels, threatening humans health, water levels and decreased oxygen in the air.

  2. No to any tanker traffic on the Douglas Channel! No to any pipeline in B.C. Your Company will not live on what disasters they will cause! Our people won’t have any seafood or lively hood after the disastrous mayhem you will cause.
