Last week, the Richmond jet fuel pipeline plan was given the green light by the province. An environmental assessment certificate was given to the Vancouver Airport Fuel Facilities Corporation (VAFFC) for the project.
The project would have a 13 kilometre pipeline built to connect the south arm of the Fraser River to the airport. In addition, a marine terminal and storage facility would be built on the south arm near Riverport. The move will allow jet fuel tankers to transport fuel across the Fraser River.
