FRASER SURREY DOCKS: Proposed Potash Facility
First, the Fraser Surrey Docks [FSD] wish list included the desire to export coal through their facility and today they add another wish to that list – Potash. We still don’t know if coal will be loaded off of trains onto tankers for shipment to China. While the rulings have been made, Port Metro has yet to release those rulings. So will coal be shipped from the FSD? Time will tell. It is likely the door is being left open for when the market makes it feasible to revisit again.
Meanwhile, the FSD has received interest from BHP Potash Corp. to establish a Potash terminal because of FSD’s rail/deep water infrastructure. Potash is a primary ingredient in the making of fertilizers. The proposal highlights 8 to 10 trains and 3 to 4 vessel per week would be servicing the facility.
We have obtained the BHP Potash proposal READ HERE for you to assess and decide if you wish to add your voice to this debate. The contact information is listed on the last page but you can email BHP Potash at PotashPortPermit@bhp.com
PUBLIC INPUT SOUGHT
Excerpt from BHP ‘Specialist Community’:
Potash export facility that BHP proposes to construct at Fraser Surrey Docks in Surrey to export potash from the proposed Jansen mine in Saskatchewan. I am following up to provide important information about this project.
BHP have submitted an application to the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority (VFPA) as part of the Project and Environmental Review (PER) process. We are now in the application review Public Comment Period which will run from 28 June to 27 July 2018 and are seeking input regarding the application and results of our technical assessments. Please find above a discussion guide regarding our proposed potash export facility. You can also find more information including our technical reports and find out how to participate and provide your feedback online by visiting: www.bhp.com/fsdpotashexport
