The potential risk of an oil spill is likely to spike if three marine terminals are completed, bringing increased oil tanker and other vessel traffic through the greater Puget Sound region, according to a new study released by the Puget Sound Partnership.
The vessel-traffic study measures the changing levels of risk for the Salish Sea if the Trans Mountain pipeline is expanded to bring more crude oil from Alberta's oil sands to the Vancouver, B.C., area. The study also takes into account proposed coal-export terminals at Cherry Point, Alberta, and Delta, British Columbia.
