Barge jet fuel to Sea Island
It has been very strange that the obvious option for airport jet fuel delivery has not been recognized. If you go to the north side of Sea Island and walk the paths there you can take a picture too of the jet fuel tanks at the airport within 100 metres of barges docked on the shore of the north arm of the Fraser.
Instead of a pipeline across Richmond and a tanker terminal on the south side of Richmond, wouldn’t it be just way too obvious and less costly to barge the fuel directly to Sea Island. It is amazing that this story is escaping all the news agencies.
With so many people against a pipeline across Richmond, which is not the most solid ground, you would think a barge dock and a 100-metre pipeline would be cheaper, faster and easier to build and a better environmental option—but, hey, let’s be oblivious to the obvious.
