Kinder Morgan is inviting the public to an information session on the proposed expansion of the oil storage facility and the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby.
The session is on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at the Executive Plaza Hotel, at 405 North Rd., (at the border of Burnaby and Coquitlam), from 5 to 8 p.m.
Kinder Morgan is proposing to expand the TransMountain pipeline, which runs oil from Alberta to Burnaby, nearly tripling the line's capacity.
The expansion, which must first be approved by the National Energy Board, would require doubling capacity at the tank farm on Burnaby Mountain and expanding the marine terminal on the Burrard Inlet, where tankers fill up with crude.
"We'll go over ... how many storage tanks we will be adding, dock changes, viewscapes, any changes like that," said Lisa Clement, media relations for the TransMountain expansion.
"All of the impacts are going to exist in our existing footprint. We are not expanding the land, but there are changes that will be occurring, so we're asking for people to participate in that info process."
Information from the presentation will be posted online at www.transmountain.com.
