Alaska-based fuel and lubricant distributor Shoreside Petroleum will begin expanding its fuel storage terminal in Seward later this year, it has been reported.
The project is to be completed in stages, with phase one commencing in the summer. The extension will see an additional 8 million gallons of storage built at the site, raising the terminal's total capacity to around 10 million gallons.
New storage at the terminal will guarantee supply all year round; harsh winter months can result in supply to the facility being cut from Cook Inlet due to severe ice.
Shoreside is partnering with Petro Marine Services for the expansion.
