Port of Longview Commissioners Reject Haven Energy

Great news from across the river: Port of Longview commissioners reject Haven Energy lease on 3-0 vote!

In Early March, 2015, the folks in Longview had their second major victory against the fossil fuel industry.

The first came years ago when Bradwood LNG (liquid natural gas) shriveled up and went bankrupt. The second victory came March 10th when the port actively rejected a Haven Energy Terminals LLC propane export lease. This was a hard battle, led by Landowners and Citizens for a Safe Community.

Port of Longview commissioners unanimously rejected the proposed Haven Energy propane export terminal Tuesday morning, voicing concerns about the safety and the true economic impact of the $300 million project.

The vote came after 90 minutes of testimony featuring a primarily negative response from the crowd of nearly 200 people. More than 20 people spoke against the project, while just half as many spoke in favor.

In Portland, the situation is not so joyful at the moment. Portland’s Planning and Sustainability Commission voted on April 7th, 2015 to support a proposal to build a propane export facility in North Portland.

We still have a chance to convince the City Council that Portland should follow suit in rejecting the frackin’ propane export terminal being proposed by Canadian tar sands corporation Pembina & the Port of Portland!
