Fossil Fuel Terminal Zoning Amendments

  • Five petroleum terminals are located in the Willbridge area of NW Portland.

  • The Olympic Pipeline supplies most petroleum fuels to Oregon markets from Puget Sound refineries.

  • Fossil fuel terminals typically have a combination of underground pipeline access, rail sidings, and truck loading racks.

The Fossil Fuel Terminal Zoning Amendments project would begin to implement new policy direction for fossil fuel distribution and storage facilities through changes to the Zoning Code. This proposal would restrict the development and expansion of bulk fossil fuel terminals.
