Environment

We take a proactive approach to environmental stewardship, adhering to regulatory requirements and industry best practices to identify, manage and mitigate the environmental impacts of our operations. This project’s plans incorporate environmental considerations at every stage of development and will:

  • Avoid environmental impacts wherever possible;
  • Limit the degree or magnitude of adverse environmental impacts;
  • Rectify impacts by repairing, rehabilitating or restoring the affected
    environment; and
  • Enhance positive impacts.

An environmental component of this project’s Emergency Management Plan includes standard spill prevention protocols to ensure safe transporting, loading, unloading and blending of petroleum products.
