Waterside Energy announced Wednesday plans to expand its proposed energy project in the Columbia River town of Longview, Washington.
In addition to a crude oil refinery, the company now wants to build a $450 million transload facility for liquid propane and butane gas, also known as LPG for liquified petroleum gas.
One unit train – about 115 tank cars long – would arrive from Canada at the facility every day, Waterside Energy CEO Lou Soumas said.
“Then loading it on gas carrier to go to the Asian markets,” he said. “The customer base is export.”
