Irving Oil has completed its marine terminal expansion project to add a new fuelling berth for offshore vessels.
The $20 million investment comprised a new berth on Pier 23, adjacent to the company's existing facilities on Pier 24, doubling the number of vessels that can access marine gas oil via pipeline at its marine terminal.
It allows two vessels to refuel at the same time – reducing wait times and congestion in the port, and improving harbour logistics.
Ian Whitcomb, president of Irving Oil, says: 'Demand for MGO is rising, driven largely by growth in the offshore energy industry. Our customers depend on us to carry out their business, and we're proud to invest in our facilities to meet supply requirements today, and in the decades ahead.'
