Sinking Oil Prices Raise Questions Around Proposed Vancouver Terminal

January 12, 2016

As oil prices continue to sink, Washington State is still considering a proposed oil terminal at the Port of Vancouver. The state held a second public hearing on the proposed terminal Tuesday. At the time the terminal was first proposed, the price of oil topped $100 a barrel, but falling prices have many wondering about the economic viability of the terminal. However, the oil company, Vancouver Energy Project, says the need for the terminal is still high.
