Port of Grays Harbor open to oil exportsApril 10, 2013 @ 10:37 am
HOQUIAM, Wash. (AP) - Port of Grays Harbor commissioners granted a lease option Tuesday to a company that plans to export oil from a terminal at Hoquiam.
KBKW reports ( http://bit.ly/ZFZLNS) the option allows the Grays Harbor Terminals company to begin seeking permits.
It's a subsidiary of US Development, which previously announced plans to build storage tanks to hold oil arriving by trains from Montana and North Dakota.
The company has said it plans to invest more than $60 million in the Hoquiam terminal which would employ 30 to 50 workers loading tankers.
