Tesoro Refining & Marketing Company LLC, a subsidiary of Tesoro
Corporation, and Savage Companies have entered into a joint venture to
develop and operate a new 360,000 barrel-per-day(bpd) crude-by-rail
uploading and marine loading facility at the Port of Vancouver,
Washington. The Tesoro-Savage Joint Venture will own the crude uploading
and marine loading facilities and will enter into a land lease agreement
with the Port for an initial period of ten years. Savage will oversee and
manage the design, construction and operation of the facility on the Joint
Venture's behalf. The facility is expected to be operational in 2014 and
will represent an approximate investment of $75 to $100 million.
The Facility's principal purpose is to provide North American crude oil to U.S. refineries to offset or replace declining Alaska North Slope crude reserves, California crude production, and more expensive foreign crude-oil imports. The crude oil handled by and shipped through the facility will largely offset other sources of crude oil used by U.S. refineries that choose to source a portion of their crude through the Facility. In accordance with current federal law, crude oil extracted in the United States generally cannot be exported to foreign countries.
