The company behind a proposed marine fuels terminal at the Port of Prince Rupert is holding two open houses on the North Coast this week.
Wolverine Terminals is receiving public comments which will be used in the federal government’s environmental effects evaluation of the project.
Wolverine says Prince Rupert Marine Fuels would allow cargo vessles anchored or berthed at the port to refuel locally. It says the Port of Prince Rupert is one of the only major global ports not to offer marine refuelling of cargo ships.
The first open house is set for Prince Rupert at the Crest Hotel from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday followed by a second at the Port Edward Community Centre from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday.
If approved, Wolverine hopes to start construction in early 2019.
