Construction

 

Construction Update: March 2019


Construction on the project is ongoing and expected to continue throughout 2019. Currently, ground preparation work is being done for the tank farm at the fuel receiving facility. Tank and foundation construction is expected to begin in mid-2019, with completion in late 2020. Once complete, the fuel receiving facility will consist of six steel tanks.


Pre-construction work for the pipeline will take place in April 2019 to verify underground utilities within the Bridgeport Road construction area. Construction on the pipeline itself will begin in Summer 2019 and is expected to take approximately one year. The pipeline will be built primarily using horizontal direction drilling along Highway 99, while open trench method will be used along Bridgeport Road.


The complete project is expected to be finished and operational by late 2021, ensuring that YVR has a safe and reliable supply of jet fuel.
